I had tried to start using D a while back and did some 
performance comparisons with Visual C++.  D's back end doesn't 
seem to optimize very well when I tested it. I had a huge 
performance delta. How hard would it be to make the D compiler 
emit C code that could be compiled by another C compiler?  Has 
anyone ever tried to do this?
