MetaCall Polyglot is now available form D

Hey guys I am working on an open source polyglot called MetaCall which allows calling functions between languages. Recently a contributor has implemented support for DLang (Port), which means you can use MetaCall from D to call functions in C#, NodeJS, JavaScript, TypeScript, Ruby, Python, Cobol..

I would like to know what do you think about that, and if you see it useful for embedding other languages in D, for example to allow scripting to extend a project. Any feedback will be highly appreciated.

I leave here the link of the repository: https://github.com/metacall/core

If someone is interested in the D port you can find the source here: https://github.com/metacall/dlang-port

Nice! Maybe you can use a bit of syntax sugar for D. Check this example:
https://run.dlang.io/is/TKkmbe

here is some alternative syntactic sugar with opDispatch: https://run.dlang.io/is/cdcLux

This approach seems pretty clean. I like it.

I have created a new issue for it: https://github.com/metacall/dlang-port/issues/1

Any contribution is welcome. Thanks for sharing.
