All I can get is that the
- an identifier of a member is stronger than the opDispatch. -> 
Error: function expected before (), not S(0, 0).c of type int
- and if I prefix it with '_' it ruins toString. -> Error: no 
property toString for type onlineapp.S

import std.stdio, std.range, std.algorithm, std.traits, std.meta, 
std.conv, std.string, std.uni, std.meta, std.functional, 

struct S{
     int a, b;

     auto opDispatch(string name, T)(T value)
         mixin(name[1..$], "= value;");
         return this;

void main(){

Now I'm more confused, as the compiler completely ignores the 
if(name.startsWith("_")) constraint o.O
