To add to this: C and C++ tooling are capable of parsing and 
evaluating macros to a decent level, yet D tooling can't even 
figure out simple templates, and often can't even figure out 
return types when you use an `auto` variable. We have plenty of 
room for growth, but I fear this is only a bandaid without a 
proper compiler-as-a-library to build with.
