 So, while I'm not going to be writing an IDE, I figure that dmd can 
 help. dmd already puts out .doc and .di files. 

If dmd could produce inforamtion similar to the information created by the ctags utility then I think that would be a great improvement. Currently there are several editors that rely on ctags for their language information (i.e. Emacs, Zeus, Vim, etc.) but unfortunately ctags does a poor job of supporting the D language. If the compiler itself could produce tag information better than ctags then I think that would be a great improvement.
