I have been considering the feasibility of implementing a model 
checker in D,
but a symbolic one, mainly because of the convenience of having 
control over the GC. I've built some tiny bits (an extremely basic
implementation of decision diagrams and a parser for Büchi 
automata used in LTL
model checking).

It's a big project but IMHO it would be useful, if nothing else 
as a
benchmarking tool with respect to other model checkers written in 
languages (Java, C++) or different implementation choices (gc,
