As the swt port is being called dwt, I hope that the ongoing jface is or
will be called dface.

Let's pretend it stands for something else in the D version. J is for...Jiffy. JFace let's you create an interFace in a Jiffy. JFace. It'll make you do a little Jiggy for Joy. It might give you such a Jolly Jolt you'll want to Jot down all your code in D. Time for a Jelly sandwich now... --bb

Actually, it's a bit of a stretch calling DWT "DWT". It's really just a port of SWT, not a new thing. The name "DWT" has kind of stuck, though; so, among other things, it's here to stay. JFace is another matter. Naming it "DFace" would have implications that just wouldn't be suitable for any respectable D port. :) -JJR

Actually, I find it kinda cute--the D port with an attitude. :-) At any rate, it's probably better than DJFace: there's probably a reason the DJ is on radio rather than TV, and it's not his voice. -- JMNorris
