If you enable link time optimisation you get cross module 


I'm not 100% sure but I think LDC did cross module inlining by 
default at some point, then I updated the compiler and had to add 
the LTO thing. I think there is an option to enable just cross 
module inlining, but if you want speed you'll probably want to 
have LTO enabled anyway?
