You could do to!string() to turn it into a UTF-8 array. What precisely are looking for with regards to bytestream? You could then write that to a stream from std.stream (though std.stream is going to be deprecated), though there is no way as far as I know to write a dchar range as UTF-8 code units to a stream (if nothing else, because the current std.stream isn't range-based), though I suppose that you could convert it a string in smaller chunks (to avoid the extra memory allocation) and then write to the stream in chunks. I'm afraid that I'm not clear enough on exactly what you're looking to do to give you a proper suggestion. - Jonathan M Davis

on further reflection, neither am I. I suppose to!string is what I want
