digitalmars.D - Other CPU instruction sets

Hi, 
 Currently GCC supports a ton of different CPUs, but D only supports x86.
That 
may become a limiting factor to D's acceptance as computers move away from
x86 
and towards ia64, ARM, etc.  I was wondering what are the plans to get D to
compile to other CPUs, especially w/o having to write a D compiler from
scratch.
