The UDA syntax allows both types and an objects. method0 uses Foo type 
and method1 uses a Foo object. So, if your API allows both, your code 
that deals with UDA must account for both.

The simplest solution here is to have method0 take an object as well:

   @Foo() void method0(){}

If you want to allow for both, the UDA code must change similar to the 

     static foreach(fieldName; __traits(allMembers, T))
         static if (hasUDA!(__traits(getMember, T, fieldName), Foo))
           static if (is (getUDAs!(__traits(getMember, T, fieldName), 
Foo)[0])) {
             // The UDA is the type Foo
             pragma(msg, "Default Foo string: ",;

           } else {
             // The UDA is a Foo object
             pragma(msg, "Special Foo string: ", 
getUDAs!(__traits(getMember, T, fieldName), Foo)[0].name);
