Yeah, byCodeUnit basically tells Phobos to ignore autodecoding, and
treats it like the array that it is for the purposes of algorithms and
ranges. It should provide all the same underlying mechanisms that the
array provides, including random access, at least that's the purpose.
byChar I think is a conversion routine, meant to be used to shoehorn
e.g. a wchar or dchar into a utf8 range. In fact, byChar returns
byCodeUnit if the types are equal (or at least it should). If it wasn't
working but byCodeUnit is, please file an issue.
