This is a problem for the automated generation of these helper methods,
they must be available in interface and certainly they need to be virtual.

I personally don't like to write getValue!(char)() to define the return
type. If the return type is Control[], the ported method looks like this:

JArrayJObject getControls();

The D help method has return type Control[]
Control[]     getControls(); // conflict

IMHO, this template solution is not complete.
