Many do indeed. And many don't.
Like `chain` https://run.dlang.io/is/sU4q80
Anything on strings like `toLower`, `canFind`
Until recently tuple didn't work
Other times, some function should work, but they are inside a
file that imports something that doesn't.
And of course the problem that anything that doesn't work at
betterC runtime, won't work in CTFE as well. Which I understand,
but goes against intuition.
Having said that, I am of the same opinion as Mike Franklin, and
I would rather see work being done on a pay-as-you-go druntime
than on a better betterC.
