This SIMD code compiles, but it's not handy:

import core.simd;
void main() {
    enum U = ubyte.max;
    ubyte16 m = [U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U,U];
}


So maybe it's worth adding the ".max" and ".min" attributes to simd registers,
to allow:

import core.simd;
void main() {
    auto a = ubyte16.max; // All initialized to ubyte.max.
    auto b = int4.min; // All initizialized to int.min.
}

This also allows to write simd code that looks more like regular code.
