That's part of what we still need to figure out. What I'm aiming 
for in the first version is you compile the D code with ldc then 
work the generated shared object back into your workflow, which 
won't be modified; you just make the blob then drop it in as if 
it was a closed-source library.

Second pass is possibly a plugin with android studio, or at least 
the build system. I'm actually totally new to mobile dev (I 
personally don't even use smartphone apps!) so lots of learning 
as I go. I'm pretty thankful for the work the ldc people have 
already done on this, as well as the prior art Joakim did before 
he left.

The iOS thing is being led by someone else (idk if he wants to 
publicly talk about it yet), but he's very much a competent Mac 
person so I have no doubt he'll make it work well.

I do want to put the bindings to the NDK into druntime as well in The D foundation is officially backing this 
work which makes that more realistic.
