It's essentially what std.algorithm does now, and std.container does something 
similar. I'd love to do something like that with std.datetime, but the fact 
that the anchors that ddoc generates have no concept of hiearchy (e.g. every 
year function in the file gets #year for its anchor rather than something like 
#Date.year, #DateTime.year, etc.). So, I couldn't provide any links in such a 
cheat sheat. I think that one or two people have said that they'd look into 
fixing it, but no one has actually fixed it yet. If no one else fixes it any 
time soon, I may be forced to go dig into ddoc to figure it out myself, which 
is definitely not where I want to be spending my time if I can avoid it.
