one solution is to dump the std.string.find (or alias it) and have the templated 
function cover that case as well.

template find(T) // untested so that might not work
   int find(T[] array, T obj) { ... }
   static if(is(T == char)
      alias std.string.find find;
      int find(T[] array, T[] obj) { ... }
