D - Min. memory consumption: object vs. dynamic int-array

Hi,

is it true that in D the min. memory consumption of an object is equal to a
dynamic int-array (8 byte)?

There's a correlation, but they have nothing to do with one another. The minimum size of a class instance is caused by the vtable pointer and a monitor used with the synchronized statement. struct values, however, have no hidden fields.
