For those cases, you must use the runtime interface that opDispatch will
use directly. D does not have a way to call a function by string at
call("functionName", arg1, arg2, arg3)
opDispatch simply provides a way to write cleaner code when you know the
name of the function.
Even in dynamic languages, it's uncommon to call functions based on

operators are not function symbols, and are already covered by templates.
It should be as simple as:
opBinary(string s, T...)(T args) if(isValidOperator!s)
