I don't have experience with premake, but there are a number of people
here who are very happy with it; it is mature and does the job. Lake
is a different animal which executes build rules and handles
dependencies directly, instead of creating makefiles.  It is also
still young and untested on big projects, so I would recommend staying
with premake if it does the job.

The main thing is that you are now using Lua ;)

That being said, it would be straightforward to teach Lake about D,
although I'd prefer to make it extensible enough that people could
download a D language plugin for it.
