Actually this is not a blocker, I am only training myself. So I ported this
"Game of Life" example and experimented with different arrays. The templated
version crashed it.

This would work as well
 Field!(w, h) a;
But the complete code uses two instances of Field, a & b and swaps them a lot.
Swapping of a and b is done much faster if they are pointers instead of 100x100

This version compiles as well and takes advantage of the internal pointers
within dynamic arrays.

auto ab = [Field!(w, h).init, Field!(w, h).init];

instead of a and b it uses ab[0] and ab ab[1].
And swaps them here.
import std.algorithm.mutation : swap;
swap(ab[0], ab[1]);
