digitalmars.D - Populating Date struct from d_time value

What is the recommended way of populating a std.date Date struct from a d_time
value returned by getUTCtime()?

I'm probably being very dense, but it seems to me that at present I have to
convert the d_time value to a formatted date string, and then parse that. This
seems very inefficient.

Also, Date has a weekday member, but no year day, and year days are quite
widely used.

There isn't a function to do it directly, but you can use YearFromTime(t), MonthFromTime(t), etc.

Day(t) - DayFromYear(YearFromTime(t))
