I believed that this guy had done it already, but turns out it was

I can't really tell you what is best to acheive what you want.
Have a look at the sources, ask the  maintainers, evaluate the

The openwarcom.org project also has a really nice debugger that
could support D if anyone made the neecessary changes.
