Try this:

	mixin ProviderParams!("S", int, "x", float, "y");

Template argument lists auto-expand, so even if you could group
arguments, they make no functional difference.  If you truly need to
distinguish between groups of arguments, you have to pack them into a
non-autoexpanding group, for example:

	template Group(Args...) {
		// Note: NOT eponymous.
		alias contents = Args;

	mixin ProviderParams!("S", Group!(int, "x"), Group!(float, "y"));

Keep in mind, however, that inside ProviderParams you will need to
explicitly access .contents. For example:

	mixin template ProviderParams(Args...) {
		static foreach (arg; Args[1 .. $]) {{
			alias type = arg.contents[0];
			alias name = arg.contents[1];
