D - Compiler Writing

Hello!  I am an experienced compiler/interpreter writer and I have been
considering using D instead of C/C++ as the implementation language.  I have a
few questions that I am seeking answers to before I begin writing it:

- Has anyone else here written a compiler in D?
- Is D well-suited to compiler writing? And if so, what features of D are
particularly good for this?
- Is there a visual debugger available for D?  If not, is there any debugger?
How good is the debugger?
- Is there a good IDE for D?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
