Well, pretty much the whole reason that druntime exists in the first place is 
so that the language stuff that requires code outside the compiler would be 
separated from the actual standard library code. So, it does seem like it's 
going contrary to that goal to make Phobos rely on magic support to do its 
thing. Certainly, if you can't build the exact same version of Phobos on two D 
compilers which are both compliant to the spec, then we have a problem.
