is(T params == __parameters) is one of the most evil arcane black magic
corners of D, as I wrote here:


It feels like it was shoehorned into is() because that was the most
convenient place at the time, but it's really a strange arcane beast
that has its own quirky behaviours that are different from anything else
I've seen in D.


The irony is that Bill Gates claims to be making a stable operating
system and Linus Torvalds claims to be trying to take over the world. --
