Hi, ok. Didn't remember that this is always the case.

Yes, that's why I was confused.

On the C++ side, Image is a class. Sometimes I need to use a pointer to 
it and sometimes a reference when using C++ side functions.

So, how do I make it possible to have both variants available in D? If 
I use class I always get a pointer, if I use strucut I always get a 

Do I define two interfaces in D one as class and one as struct with 
different names and than cast things on the D side?
