The use case:

If I want to define a collection function only use for ctfe, I 
can put them into di file to avoid binary bloat.

It also can be used create helper module for BetterC library,  so 
you can use "new Struct" in the di and import it from betterC 
module.  without use "-I=-lib_helper" to exclude every helper 
module in the library.
