Indeed, that is an oversight on my part. However, that's just a
typo I happened to include in my last attempt. I use foo() and
others, and .def exporting them etc. Tried various things based
on the examples I linked.

Well, as I'm new to D this isn't something I have insight into.
However, this being and advertised feature of the language, I'm
surprised to see that you dismiss it so casually. Also, for my
project, I mostly need interop with C libraries and D would only
serve as a glue, so I don't really need several features like GC
etc. `betterC`, at least what I thought it was supposed to be,
seemed to be a good fit for what I need.

Perhaps, but this doesn't help me much.
