If I have a function like

`extern(C) void f(void *x, size_t x_sz)`

can I instead declare it as

`extern(C) void f(void[] x)`

?

It looks like the length needs to come first [1]. I think it would be technically possible if you flipped the parameters but you would become dependent on the ABI as well. I would recommend a wrapper instead.
