I kinda cheated, because I was the one who implemented dmd's stdin
feature, so I knew that dmd implicitly creates a specially-named module
to contain the code read from stdin. I had actually forgotten what the
name of this module was, but that was no problem since it was easily
echo 'pragma(msg, __MODULE__);' | dmd -c -
which revealed the module name to be `__stdin`.
Next, thanks to D's module system, is the realization that you could
import this implicit module from somewhere else and pull symbols from
it. From there, the everything else followed. :-)
There is no gravity. The earth sucks.
