I don't know much about Bison. But isn't Bison a parser generator that
takes some language grammar as input and outputs a parser implemented in
some language. Bison seem to currently support C, C++ and Java for the
parser implementation. Is the goal to add D to that list?

Why is this a separate task? In my opinion all unit tests should be
written at the same time as the implementation, or before, if you're
doing test driven development. And the implementation is not done until
the tests are done an all pass. The tests are part of the implementation.
