If you could make any changes to D, what would they look like?

Umm, do we have to do anything in this case?

It'll be the same as for structs:
import std;

struct S{
     void opUnary(string s : "++")(){
     	writeln(`called opUnary!("++")()`);
     int a;

void func(S* param){
void main()
  	S s;

You use `ref`, you can't do pointer arithmetic anymore.
