  I thought the {{ }} was mostly related to static if, namely that 
when you do static if, the block contents is added in scope; So 
if you needed a scope you'd do the second bracket as the 
outer/first one is stripped out.

  I need to once again re-familiarize myself more with D. It's 
been too long.
