DWARF4 adds some improvements to allow richer debug information and better
compression.
If it's properly supported by most debuggers we should consider to upgrade.

I'd ensure that you have complete DWARFv3 support first before jumping over to
DWARFv4.

Why? What tools can use Dwarf 3? The more interesting stuff that allows D's
arrays is only available with version 4.

As in, make sure that you at least implement types that can be represented as
of DWARFv3, but for whatever reason DMD doesn't do it (eg: enums)

I'm not sure how you would represent D arrays differently from a
DW_TAG_structure_type.
