The thing I'm trying to implement is: I have a function 
foo(string s)() and some "state"; this function should override 
this "state" (using "s" param) for all code within this function 
(note that code can execute other modules that can refer to the 
same "state"). The problem is that I need this overridden "state" 
to be compile-time constant to be used in mixin. Any ideas how I 
can do this?
