Oh it's working. I did a basic transition to make it compile in
D, then I've been doing more D features and rewriting sections
and removing unneeded sections, some which greatly simplifies the
code, and some for speedups for knowing what certain calls are
doing and working around to avoid unnecessary work.
Though i wonder if the lookup tables (that fit as ubytes) should
be ubyte or size_t; And if i should have it pre-calculate the
polynomials to free up space in the struct or not (vs calculating
them when you change it). The amount of processing isn't that
high vs the space it may be taking up.
