So BigInt's aren't printable via writeln in protest?  I guess I don't
understand why you can't do this:

string toString()
  string retval;
  void sink(const(char)[] data) { retval ~= data; }
  toString(&sink, null);
  return retval;

It doesn't hurt/limit the current toString, does it?  And then it makes bigints
printable via writeln.

BTW, toString's delegate is not scope, so you are going to allocate a closure
for that...
