That's nice!

Do you have a link for more information how to initialize the D 
runtime? I just wondered about that because I thought it actually 
shouldn't be much more difficult than just linking the runtime 
into the foreign-language compiled program. I didn't find 
information on that. Maybe I didn't search long enough.
