I don't think this is legal in D.  In fact, the syntax is a huge problem 
in C++ because the parser often can't distinguish between a variable 
decl and a function prototype, and function prototypes take precedence. 
  It may be uglier, but:

     BitArray b = BitArray( 1, 0, 1 );

is better than:

     BitArray b( 1, 0, 1 );

I only wish that the syntax worked for all stack variables.  ie.

     int x = int( 1 );
