digitalmars.D - MPI bindings revisited

Hello,

A while ago a thread was started on implementing MPI bindings for 
D (see 
http://forum.dlang.org/thread/dnjm6k$145u$1 digitaldaemon.com | 
Stewart Gordon; December 12, 2005; Partial translation of MPI 
headers; digitalmars.D.announce)

I downloaded the bindings (mpi.tar.gz) and tried to compile it, 
but I had no success. I am too incompetent to get it working. May 
someone have a look into it?

I (and probably many others involved in massive numerical 
computation) would find this binding very useful, Once working, 
it seems like it would fit well in Deimos.

Thank you,
Dominic Jones

Judging by the year (2005) my first guess is - the binding is done in D1. Many things have changed in last 7 years. D is very much different from back then... That code needs to be changed quite a bit to work.
