dmd is still significantly faster to run and to recompile!

That's not quite true. They share about 98% of the code, but that 
remaining 2% can be significant at times.

For example, ldc's extern(Objective-C) lacks much of the stuff 
dmd's have, since that's part of that 2% glue code that is 
compiler specific.
