Can we do system calls like that in D?

Hello Adam! Well this is not exactly the behavior I was looking 
for, you see in this solution, there are two problems:

1. The mixins will get generated by the compiler (if I'm not 
mistaken) so it will worsen the compilation times VS if it was a 
simple function like in Vox.
2. I don't care about the syntax, neither than the fact that you 
can give the function an name you want (aliases can be used for 
that) but for the fact that with these way in Vox, you don't have 
to manually write inline assembly.

It seems that I'm out of luck so inline assembly, here I go 
(unfortunately)! Thanks for your time and have a great day!
