Yes, that makes sense -- probably two different interfaces ... ?  I know that 
access to system libraries is a known issue in terms of defining an interface 
(this was discussed earlier when I was attempting to snap-package LDC, the 
LLVM-based D compiler).

I'm happy to have a go at defining an interface that would allow access to a D 
compiler, if someone can offer basic guidance as to what would be involved. 
(Ideally, such an interface would offer access both to snap-packaged D compilers 
and any D compilers installed on the host system.)

Thanks & best wishes,
