template defaultFormat(alias method)
         static foreach(attr; __traits(getAttributes, method))
                 static if(is(typeof(attr) == string))
                         enum defaultFormat = attr;

         static if(is(typeof(defaultFormat) == void))
	        enum defaultFormat = "default";
