I think Phobos needs one or two functions to rotate the bits of a unsigned
integral value, because DMD is now able to optimize a specific coding pattern
to use specific CPU instructions, but it's easy to write the operation in a way
that doesn't allow the pattern to be recognized. 

A Phobos template function (with a constraint that lets it accept only the
right input types) will allow to explicitly ask for this operation to every
present and future D compiler, with no risk of mistakes from the programmer.
