Incidentally, the reason I invented a syntax in this DIP, was because
we have no initialisation syntax in D, despite the language clearly
having the ability to initialise values (when they're declared); we
have an amazingly complex and awkward library implementation of
`emplace`, which is pretty embarrassing really.
The fact that I needed to invent a syntax to perform an initialisation
is a very serious problem in its own right.

But forget about that; I removed the need to express initialisation
from the rewrite.
