doesn't cause a link time error when you just import and don't

other posts in this thread show Walter is working on that so yay)
If you could have imported std.conv in druntime, it would have
That's my point. We keep clashing despite being on the same side!
When I say the import is the problem, I don't mean the syntax or

the Phobos module and all the stuff that brings. druntime can't

low-level cases. And specialized low-level cases are where you
