*Shouldn't* post-blit be invokable by calling <File(file)>?  Wouldn't this be a
desirable behavior?

If not, how do I allocate a default-initialized File struct in the heap using
<new>  (so that I can follow that by overwriting the whole structure and get
post-blitter to run)?

what I'm taking about is this (this is what I want to do):

////////////////////////////
import std.stdio;

struct Tokenizer
{
    File* file = null;

    void 
    initFile(File f)
    {
        this.file = new File;   // I want to allocate a new File struct and set
it to File.init -- DOESN"T WORK!
        *this.file = f;              // copy bits and then automatically call
post-blit File.this(this) 
    }
}
////////////////////////////

At the line above marked "DOESN'T WORK", the compiler refuses to allocate a new
default-initialized File struct.  This is a problem
