Yes, I just put in a runtime condition to trick the compiler:

bool isScriptable(attributes...)() {
         bool nonConstConditionForWorkingAroundASpuriousDmdWarning 
= true;
         foreach(attribute; attributes) {
                 static if(is(typeof(attribute) == string)) {
                         static if(attribute == scriptable) {
                                 return true;
         return false;

the optimizer can prolly remove that condition anyway but it is 
good enough to silence the warning. still just all the work 
arounds are kinda gross.
