But they have the money for it. What would you charge for 
implementing one that is fine tuned for D?

I've given it some thought and concluded that it would be rather 
risky to take it on with less than 2 years pay... So if we do it 
as a collective spare time project it would take at least 5 to 
get to something that could even approach ARC. That's a very 
rough estimate. Maybe pessimistic, but the risk is that it leads 
to something unusable, and then you have wasted a lot of 
resources for nothing.

With ARC you can be certain that you have something that can 
complement manual strategies.
