Many do indeed. And many don't.

Like `chain`
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.
