Stefan would have a field day with this power :)
Infact I think this would scale pretty badly.
I do not want to debug some ctfe which loads dlls and does god what to

If I'd had to worry about an interface to runtime code I'd be a little
I kind of remember you saying at dconf2016 "If only CTFE could write to

or something like that.
At least in terms of i/o printing to the console or whatnot, it would be
cool to be able to do so at compile-time just directly with writeln. As
of now, a CTFE function can't call writeln, and it also can't
pragma(msg, ...) because it has to be written as a runtime function.
