I searched the forum but did not find something.
I want to do this:
int foo(T)(ref T s1, ref T s2)
const byte s1b = (cast(const(byte)*)&s1)[0 .. T.sizeof];
const byte s2b = (cast(const(byte)*)&s2)[0 .. T.sizeof];
Which is to create a byte array from the bytes of the value
given, no matter
the type. The above works, but it's not @safe.
Casting from one type of pointer to another and slicing a pointer
are both @system, by design. What's the actual problem you're
trying to solve? There may be a different way to do it that's
