I think it's great that you are doing this. Tracing is an 
extremely lacking part in D, so I am grateful for what you have 
started here.

I'm curious though, why does this need to be a compiler change 
instead of a library addition? It says in the user manual that 
"There can be no more than 65534 unique source locations", so 
wouldn't automatically inserting the boilerplate into every 
function pretty quickly blow that up?

Also where does the referenced TracyClientNoExit.o file in your 
changes come from?
