           Summary: Better error message with  disabled toString

A low priority enhancement suggestion.

A way to disallow the printing of a struct is to use  disable on its toString:


struct Foo {
     disable string toString();
}
void main() {
    import std.stdio;
    Foo f;
    writeln(f);
}



But the missing function is only detected at link time (dmd 2.065alpha):

test2.obj(test2) 
 Error 42: Symbol Undefined _D5test23Foo8toStringMFZAya


So perhaps it's better to add to write a template constraint that verifies
toString is not  disabled, to catch the problem at compile-time.
