Dmitry O told me about it.  When I got back home I tried using 
LDC in betterC mode and it just worked.  I did some work that I 
didn't finish on making a wrapper out of polyglot.h

Problem with porting runtime too is that graal doesn't have 
pthread even.  I guess you could fake that and anything else you 
might need but I figure calling C# should come first for us right 

Dmitry looks to be working on transpiling D to Java via DMD 
motivated by running on Graal.  I think he has Scala code at work 
but maybe other benefits from Graal.  Very cool once it works.
