are you familiar with my libraries? your code there looks trivial 
to do in D, the only piece I don't have sitting on my shelf is 
the cassandra one, and since there's a C library for that, that'd 
be easily accessible with my framework.

I think it is folly to insist on rewriting everything in your own 
language/library of choice. I'll agree there - the big guys might 
be able to do that (or be popular enough to get the other 
companies to officially support you) but D isn't really in that 
position. But we do have excellent interop with the lingua franca 
of apis - C. I have had reliable database code for ages because I 
just use an interface over the official C client libraries.

HTTP I wrote from scratch, but even that got bootstrapped by 
reusing the existing stuff - the original cgi interface (which 
btw is now a misnomer, since it does let you do an embedded 
server) did the bare minimum to talk to apache and iis servers! 
And the original http client I did called curl. I have since 
replaced that with scratch too, but I still think curl is a 
decent way to do it.

anyway though i just wonder if you tried it and found it sucked 
(or didn't try it cuz you saw it and was like "this sux" - to 
this day my docs are super light) or just didn't see it.
