import std.stdio: writeln;
import std.range: chunks;
void main() {
    chunks("abcd"d, 0).writeln;
}

Prints an unbound range of empty strings, I think this is not good:

["", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "", "" ...

I suggest to refuse the chunkSize = 0 with a pre-condition (or worse with an
enforce).

An alternative solution is to make 0 a special case, and return the whole
iterable:

std.range.chunks("abcd"d, 0).writeln;

==>

["abcd"]
