digitalmars.D - Non-x86 targets for DMD

I would help out after I either finish my college or get booted 
out from there for failing to finish it (I currently need a 
consultant for my master's thesis I'm making on my project 
written in D, contact me if you would want to help me out in 
this, I'll provide you with two way Hungarian-English 
translation), I'm already planning my suggestions and 
contribution for a better vector support (I would suggest to add 
32 bit and 64 bit fixed-point vectors, the 32 bit ones would be 
great for per-pixel graphics in certain cases to avoid 
workarounds).

Here is my suggestion, try and document the backend. You may form a very different opinion after trying to do that or come up with a game plan on how to implement non-X86 targets.
