(A bit OT)

We tried to convince Walter to make extern(C++) void f(int[]) 
Just Work™, to no avail, because he though that it would b 
"unintuitive" for people to have include a header to have to use 
it. Go figure.

I doubt that span<span<T>> will be widely used, because jagged 
matrices are a bit of an odd choice of structure, 
span<string_view> might get a bit of use though.
