std.conv.to!string(float) Is too heavy

I have wrote a simple hello world using std.conv:
export void MAIN(float b)
writeln("Hello World " ~ to!string(b));
Building that with dmd app.d -lib creates 500KB lib
With `-g`, it goes up to 800KB
Using ldc, the build time goes up by 2 times.
if you simply change from `float b` to `int b`, the lib goes down
from 500KB to 60KB.
The build times decreases by almost 10x (must check), but I can
feel that anyway.
Using std.conv greatly degrades a modularized workflow, by
increasing a lot of build time and binary size. I needed
implementing my own to! function to get a much better build time
for my program.
