Note that this also resolves the long-standing legal issue with D's inline
assembler being backend licensed, and so not portable to gdc/ldc.
That makes the assumption that license was the reason why it's not included. ;-)
Having an inline assembler is a lot less important than it used to be, so this
is not a big issue. David also hinted that ldc wrote a work-alike, so this was
likely an issue for them.
