digitalmars.D.learn - Should this library binding work?

https://github.com/ZILtoid1991/bindbc-zstandard After looking for alternatives to my megaproject of porting LZHAM to D (since it had several issues, I'll salvaging my tar implementation as well as another archive format meant for application data storage), I found out that zstandard not only has better ratios than DEFLATE, but also faster (LZHAM was a bit below DEFLATE decompression-wise with poor compression rate, probably due to poor implementation). So I thought I'll make a new binding for zstandard instead as the old one is abandoned pretty much at this point. Currently it compiles, I'll write a testcase for it to see if it can load a DLL file tomorrow. I don't really have any real way to test it on OSX, might try to test it under Linux since I have a second machine with it.
