How realistic is it to use D for embedded development?  I guess both
C++ and D require you to lug a runtime along with you (unless you
compile statically).  Is that a big deal with your specific
application to avoid that kind of overhead?  Even in the embedded
world, it seems that memory and CPU power are easier and easier to
come by.
