What I mean is, a construct like your "Array" on the D-side, that
is automatically convertable from/to a slice on the D-side. Such
that you can define cross-C++-D functions that accept slices on
the D-side, and accepts Array structs on the C++ side, and all is
mangled properly because the D-side is also using the Array
struct yet still accepting slices.
