pragma suggestion
Just thought it would be useful if import directories could be set from the
source files. Maybe something similar to pragma(importdir,"../foo"); I think
this is not compiler specific since D imports don't take path in any form so
maybe it is appropriate...

I've gone back and forth with this. The basic problem is it makes the source
files non-portable.

Agreed. That's why I didn't see much point in putting this functionality
into the Build utility either. I can if somebody really needs it, but it
sounds like a backwards step.
