    It would be very handy to introduce a special compilation mode in the D

information on types, variable and class names, errors, warnings, optimization
notes and other useful information that would help an IDE (or any other
frontends) to help programmers in a code completion and in other useful things.
It’s supposed to run fast in a background like Eclipse does that to java source

Are you sure Eclipse does that to Java source files? I think Eclipse developed a Java compiler, from which they gather all that information.

yes, it does.
    Does Walter consider that worth of his attention to bother about?
