I have no idea how you could misunderstand that. I only see one way to
interpret that, which is that we simply provide C bindings and you have to deal
with whatever quirks the C function has, just like you would have to in C. The
bindings in druntime are provided so that Phobos can build better abstractions
on them and so that D programmers have direct access to system functions where

If you want a cleaner API around a C function, then create a D wrapper. In the
case of fopen, that's done with std.stdio.File. We're not trying to clean up C
APIs or make them easy-to-use, just provide bindings for them.
