I started that work due to a recent ping of this issue and me accidentally
noticing it. ;)
So the pow operator is working with that PR for LDC; there a static assert in
the last line of the test.

I detect a few more key primitive functions (ldexp, isNaN, isInfinity,
isFinite...) as builtins and forward to proper implementations in CTFloat. I
also had to make std.math.exp2() CTFE-able for 80-bit reals by not using the
inline assembly code for CTFE. DMD may need a few more builtins or
CTFE-friendly Phobos implementations to get all of this working as well; I'll
open a DMD PR for the ones required by LDC.
So how does newCTFE interact with CTFloat at the moment? This is an important
piece for cross-compilers. And is there an estimate for when newCTFE will land?
