to!(char[])() should work just fine, but I believe that you're going to have to 
have a memory allocation regardless, since a D array can't refer to an arbitrary 
pointer. A D array and a C/C++ array are two different different things, even 
though a D array uses a C/C++ array internally. A D array is able to be resized 
and reallocated and the like in a way that a C/C++ array can't be.
