Did anyone tried to pack dmd as appimage? Is it even feasible?

It would be a easy way to:
- Run dmd without installation (and root permissions)
- Use multiple dmd versions

DVM [1] doesn't require root permission, allows multiple dmd version and it's cross-platform (Linux, macOS, Windows). But it requires to install DMD and DVM itself. [1] https://github.com/jacob-carlborg/dvm -- /Jacob Carlborg

Here [1] it is explain how an appImage can be created from a PPA or from a TravisCI build. It seems that we just need to write a short script to get it works. [1] https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageKit/wiki/Creating-AppImages
