So I'm not sure you can do what you want to do - D doesn't have 
any way to reflect on template parameters (though you CAN extract 
arguments I don't think it really helps here since you can't tell 
if the arguments were from `int, float` or from `T...` for 

But like I don't really get why you need this. Can't you just use 
the arguments C already has and not have the extra layer? So 
you'd treat templated C the same was as non-templated C, and then 
if you want the mangle, just use like C.mangleof instead of 
trying to reconstruct it.

What's the bigger picture here?
