class Foo
    this(float f) {}

class Bar : Foo
    this(int i) {}

-> foo.d(8): Error: constructor foo.Bar.this no match for implicit super() call
in constructor

Adhering to the spec, dmd silently inserts a super() call in Bar's constructor
as soon as its base class Foo has *a* constructor. But there is no this()
without arguments in Foo.

This always requires me to put a bugging this() {} into Foo.

Why can't dmd just generate an empty this(){} in this case?
I mean it also does it the other way around:

"If there is no constructor for a class, but there is a constructor for the
base class, a default constructor of the form: this() { } is implicitly

(Though the spec could be clearer here, does this also mean that a super() call
is inserted into this newly generated this()?)
