There are two problems with contracts in D.

1. In-contracts are executed by the callee instead of the caller. 
Currently there's only a syntactic difference between an 
in-contract and a regular assertion inside the function body.

2. Phobos is not shipped with assertions enabled. There should be 
a debug version of Phobos shipped with DMD with assertions 
enabled. Perhaps that could be linked by default when the 
`-debug` flag is used.
