dmd can read files at compile time using the import function [1]

Incorporate HTML template files into a CGI binary. After putting 
[ and ] around the list in LS this works:

module TemplateStore;
import std.path;
import std.conv;
import std.file;

immutable string[string] template_map;

static this ()
    immutable LS = import (`LS`);
    immutable template_files = mixin(LS);

    static foreach (f; template_files) {
       pragma (msg, `reading template <` ~ f ~ ">");
       template_map[f] = import (f);
