That's basically the C# solution.

That is good if we just doing simple values, but it fails for D's 
unique compile-time things and is iffy with ref and non-copyable 

I wrote about it in more detail in my blog last year:


In short, things like `ref`, `enum`, and `alias`-ness of data are 
lost through that layer.

So good, but not great because it doesn't build on D's other 
existing strengths.

Me and Steven continue to argue in a chat btw, we're whittling 
each other's ideas down and we're coming to something you all 
will prolly like...

so stay tuned.
