Well if I post this as a question to SO and link it here, would 
you mind answering it? Maybe we should make this a general 
scheme: If someone has trouble learning something, just ask the 
question directly on SO and have someone answer it there. SO is 
way easier to google than this learn forum or the documentation 
on dlang. And every single question that gets answered may be 
helpful to others trying to do the same :)
