You should not turn off deprecations btw ;).

I haven't turned off deprecations. This is in Tango and it seems no one has cared to fix those.

The simple solution in you case is to override the inherited `string
toString()` with an implementation that forwards to your `toString()`.

class UniText
     override string toString() { return toString(null).idup; }
     abstract const char[] toString (char[]  dst = null);
     abstract const wchar[] toString16 (wchar[] dst = null);
     abstract const dchar[] toString32 (dchar[] dst = null);

Also see at
for an example of an alternative overridable toString method.
Maybe you should use the delegate based toString as well, it's already
supported by a some phobos formatting.

Again, this is in Tango, I just want it to compile :)
