digitalmars.D.learn - 'Custom D array allocation'.

Other than something like the following hack:

     int[] array = (cast(int*)std.c.stdlib.malloc(int.sizeof * len))[0..len];

Is there a way to customize new for arrays?

The following is currently allowed, but apparently not *used* (the allocation
is still done through 
the GC -- malloc is never called):

     int[] array = new(std.c.stdlib.malloc(int.sizeof * len)) int[len];
