I saw your .stringof trick a few days ago and it made my day :-)
But I didn't know you could text-import at compile-time (with access
for the programmer, I mean. Obviously the compiler can import at CT).

OK, then it's doable to get a compile-time list of imported modules
from a module name. Too bad modules are not first class in D: would
they have type, we could return a list of them [std.algorithm,
std.concurrency, ...]

I'm not much versed in DMD switches. I'll try and see.
