To be more explicit, I wrote a library in C since it's much leaner size-wise
than the D code (although admittedly much *much* more tedious to write
especially with all those string manipulations) and since it's callable from
other languages like Python too.
None of those other languages have CTFE AFAICS. I would like to provide at
least the D wrapper to the C library with a template which will enable CTFE
computation via the library (it's just a string to string conversion). But
the D compiler is complaining that it cannot call the C function at compile
time even though the library is installed under /usr/local/lib and Python is
able to access it via CTypes.
