A string in D is a slice. A pointer + length. This is entirely platform agnostic.

A dynamic array, is a slice, backed by the GC. This requires the GC and with that druntime. Which means you cannot append to a slice without druntime.

Classes require a ton of infrastructure to work. They are not purely a compilation construct.
