You're almost guaranteed to hit some wall with it and have no
solution. Some of these are bugs but some of them are by design;
betterC is a set of arbitrary restrictions without much
consistent reasoning behind them.
For example, with dlls, you still have to deal with all the
potential problems of C library version mismatches, but if you
use any module that touches a D feature it is likely to compile
but then fail to link when someone uses it! All pain, no gain.
