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.
