digitalmars.D - D client for ROS

Hi all,
   Are there any robot folks out here that are working with ROS 
and would be able to work on creating a D client library for it?

ROS is used a lot at our university and in robot research in 
general, and most people use the C++ client (the main one, next 
to Python). In arguing for teaching D at our university, it would 
help a lot if students could use D with ROS.

Cheers,

Looks like you will have to make a robot to have it write the D client for ROS. :o) Ali

Mike as been doing some foundation work non ARM Cortex ...microcontrollers... His work is closest I know of.

I know of Mike's work, but ROS is not only for embedded platforms. (in fact, I think the majority of people run ROS on unconstrained systems with Linux available)
