I think that's excellent as well, and to be honest I don't think an
annotation is a good solution, but we're going to have to come up with
something here because it isn't "just working."

CTFE, traits, and mixins together make D a powerhouse for compile-time code
generation, and that's pretty much what's kept me around here :D
