Porting VisualD to Windows 8 and Visual Studio 11
https://github.com/roman-d-boiko/visuald/commit/65d733853ea7c38dd010091c942b66ef892bd216#diff-0

Please review. It is not finished, but I would like to get some 
feedback.

Note: support for previous versions of Windows and VS is 
temporarily broken to speed-up my current work. Later my changes 
will be versioned.

By the way, did anybody try doing this before?

Just found that 
http://dsource.org/projects/visuald/browser/downloads/VisualD-v0.3.33rc1.exe 
supports VS 11 :) (Is it for beta or RC?)

But after installing it nothing changed in VS, new project types 
have not been created.

TOOLS->Options now contain settings for D.

After reboot I can create projects in D :)

I was about to say that it works for me on VS11 RC :)

Anyway it would be great to build with Windows 8 RC SDK, so my 
changes are potentially useful (but not necessary, nor important).

As you don't need the VS2012 SDK or the Windows 8 SDK to build Visual D, 
it does not seem urgent to do the translations, but it might be nice to 
have them as this is a fast way to update the interface headers to a new 
OS version. The recent version of the converter also translates "#ifdef 
_WIN64" to "version(Win64)" instead of throwing the code out, but I have 
not done a lot with it yet.

So far I have the beta of VS 2012 installed, and from the files you 
added to the translation, it seems that the release candidate has a few 
more files. I'll update my VS11beta to VS2012rc and will have a look.

At first glance, your way to translate the shared/um files seems fine, 
but I have yet to understand the text replacements. Those 
_null_terminated_ annotations (and similar) should probably be 
translated to their Win7 SDK version identifier __nullterminated. That 
way they might get handled correctly by the regex expressions.

I wanted to experiment with VisualD a bit to check whether it is 
possible to make use of my other project 
(https://github.com/roman-d-boiko/dct, currently very early 
draft) from VisualD.

Are these SDKs needed for developing VisualD on Windows 8 RC with 
Visual Studio 11 RC? This setup is the one I use most often.

I didn't include all required files yet.

These are dirty, I tried to move fast without polishing.

Basically, either a block of text from some file is commented out 
when it generates compiler error, or some block (`open`) is 
replaced with equivalent starting from `/+`, and the other 
(`close`) with the one ending `+/`, so that everything between 
them is commented out.

I think some blocks could be converted to the D equivalents, but 
I don't have experience with this.

Would be nice to know the correct mapping for various 
annotations. So far I tried to mimic code already present in 
VisualD.
