That wouldn't be a considerable effort on its own (I think all 
necessary machinery is already part of druntime.rt package) but 
right now you would need to have druntime built with debugging 
symbols to get anything done.

For C++ standard containers it is not a problem because those are 
defined in header files. If AA implementation was switched to 
templates, it would "just work" for druntime too.
