So I could probably re-write this as
int* data = cast(int*)malloc(10 * int.sizeof);
int slice = data[0 .. 10];
So maybe the issue is with being able to slice arbitrary
pointers? I don't know...
It all seems tied in to the ability to conflate a malloc'ed slice
with a GC'ed slice. If anything, I don't think it should be easy
to do this.
