This sounds like a bug.. if it CAN be done with an executable
size of 4MB, why would it not be so on OSX/Linux?
Also, i was reading through this pull request:
and yglukhov mentioned something about needing 5 minutes and 12GB
or ram to build phobos with whatever they're talking about.
To be honest though, after reading the above pull-comments and
this one below, I'm still confused about what they're trying to

You're right that I am creating a class per symbol, along with a
bunch of other templates. It probably would be a good idea to try
and eliminate the templates where possible. I'm not sure why you
are suggesting structs instead of classes though.
