I am not sure what you are talking about.
There is no dependency between dmd and tracy.

Are you talking about providing a general profiling interface?
That might be possible but outside of the scope what I am trying 
to do right now.
Also keep in mind that the number of layers between the profiler 
and the profiled application diminish the usefulness.

To be honest having to link with a library to use tracy already 
I'd rather inject all the profiling code verbatim, but that's too 
involved at the moment.
