D - Okay Walter, Where do we start?

So what are the plans for D, Walter?

<joke mode on>

Is this going to be an open source project that will appear on the likes of
SourceForge?

Is there a gang of elite hackers out there working on the D compiler?  Is it
going to appear on sale in a store near you?  Infomercials with actors from
long dead sitcoms?

<joke mode off>

Seriously, though, this sounds to me like an exciting, ground level project
that I'd like to be involved with.  Is there an open source implementation
planned, is there a team being put together to develop the compiler?

What can we do, Walter, to help to bring your creature to life?

I'm a failure at writing class libraries. I've repeatedly tried designing
one, and have hated them all.

D needs a class library!

I wrote some thoughts down once on what the design goals of it should be, I
should find that and post it.

What do you mean by a class library, exactly? A sort of standard library of classes similar to java's System.in/out ?

Or like Python's, or javascript's, or whatever.
