Hi,

I'm interested in utilising D for operating system development, and am wondering
what the best path is to hacking the phobos runtime library so that I can
compile & link with barely any C environment.

I am using the linux dmd compiler, and would need to remove the threading code
that seems to be used in various internal modules of dmd, and am wondering what
the consequences would be of removing such code.

Kindest Regards,
