Well, for one thing: the text formatting routines don't seem to support 
binary output. At least not with "{0:b}", which seemed to me to be the 
most logical format string for it, since "{0:x}" formats to hexadecimal.
Phobos' writefln() does, and the first program I tried to port happened 
to use it...

By the way, is there some documentation for what's allowed in format 
strings that I missed? If so, it IMHO needs to be linked more thoroughly 
from the documentation for things that accept them...
