Uh, what will it link to? extern(C) function like gc_malloc?
druntime links to those statically itself so you will get
application that links to different GC than druntime itself.
The reason is CDGC provides symbols like gc_malloc and after
that the linker has no reason to pull default GC from the
library: it doesn't pull what's not necessary.
It will clash at best, or just ignore cdgc, as objects are
considered as a whole, in link order.
Now, if druntime defines gc_alloc, it won't link. You have to
extract all conflicting symbols out of druntime.
However, one could provide a full druntime patched with CDGC as a
dub module, and that might work, I suppose.
