import std.bigint: BigInt;
void main() {
    auto b1 = BigInt(1);

cannot deduce template function from argument types !()(BigInt)

Currently BigInt contains immutable digits, so that operation is O(1).
GMP supports mutable numbers too for higher efficiency for certain operations,
if BigInt will do the same, then BigInt(BigInt(1)) will create a copy of the
