Perhaps one solution is to simply have the compiler recognize all valid
D constructs, but to give an error when it sees a construct not
supported by the target platform. For example:

	input.d(123): Error: dynamic arrays not supported by target

This way, we don't cause fragmentation of D, and at the same time users
will know which constructs should be avoided due to target platform
