digitalmars.D.bugs - [Issue 18048] New: std.bigint.toDecimalString is impure


          Issue ID: 18048
           Summary: std.bigint.toDecimalString is impure
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos

Looking at the code, there's no reason why to decimal string needs to be
impure, it's just that the `toString` of BigInt uses the delegate sink method
of `toString`, which must necessarily be impure, while the underlying function
which actually calculates the string is pure.

toDecimalString should be reworked to be pure
