strange, this works

|template Types(A...)
|  template Values(B...)
|  {
|  }
|alias Types!(int, bool, int[]).Values!(1,true,[1,2,3]) bob;

And while I'm thinking about it; why isn't there something like a "one space 

A few times, I have wanted a template that works just like a tuple taking 
template but where one or more of the spots must be filled and a keep separate 
from the rest.

template Foo(A, B...) {}

these should work

Foo!(1, int);
Foo!(int, 1);
Foo!(Foo!(int, 1));

this shouldn't


(alias dosen't work)
