It's to work around a dmd bug that doesn't allow overloads between
templates and non-templates.  But I just checked, looks like that bug
may have been fixed since, so now the following overloads would work:

        void writefln(string format, A...)(A args) { ... } // current
        void writefln(A...)(string format, A args) { ... } // new

1. "writefln" is already a template [1]:

void writefln(Char, A...)(in Char[] fmt, A args)

2. Both of your above examples are templates

3. The easiest way to workaround that bug is to make the non-template function a template function without arguments:

void foo()(int a);
void foo(T)(T a, T b);

But if the bug is fixed, then that's great :)
