digitalmars.D.learn - Are there any containers that go with allocators?

Normally I'm happy with the GC containers in D, they work well 
and suit my use.

I have a few uses that would benefit from allocation in memory 
arenas or local stack based allocation. Looks like 
std.experimental has allocators for those use cases.

But I can't find any containers to make use of those allocators. 
The built in ones use GC managed memory, there are std.container 
but they appear to use malloc/free which again is useful but not 
what I'm looking for.

I'd like resizeable arrays, hashmaps and strings that I can 
allocate using an allocator?
Am I missing something in the standard library, or a way to use 
the existing ones, or is it just that nobody has implemented this 
kind of thing yet?

It uses the older design for allocators (dependency).
