Ack, I already registered an extra account in the name of 'LDC Developers'.  I 
hope there's no harm in using that ... :-)

The `ldc2` name is apparently reserved (I requested it); if I temporarily choose 
a different name, will I wind up with the issue of all my programs being called 
something like my-temporary-snap-name.ldc2 etc.?

Yes, it should be good.  The LDC folks certainly seem happy :-)

The snap for DUB (a package/build manager for D programs) is also working nicely 
AFAICT so I'll follow up with that soon (I'd like to have one published snap for 
people to try and verify before I proceed with any others).
