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.
