digitalmars.D - minimizing memory footprint

I am trying to minimize the memory footprint of a.  What happens is the app
starts up runs some D code.  This code sets up some structures that are then
passed to the "real" app.  I would like to minimize the memory footprint that
the D code occupies once the structures are built.  I am looking for comments on
the technique I will describe here as well as alternative suggestions..

We have config.dll (the D code) and app.exe (any language let's say it is C).
app.exe loads config.dll dynamically and passes it a block of memory.  The
config.dll loads the necessary data into the block of memory then returns to
app.exe.  App.exe then unloads the dll (does anything special need to be done to
free all the memory the D garbage collector allocated?), then runs the real
application passing in the structures.



regards,
Glen
