I can think of a similar syntax as the inout for functions:

wild struct Range
    wild(Node)* cur;
    @property wild(V) front() wild { return cur.value; }
    void popFront() wild { cur = cur.next; }
    @property bool empty() wild { return next !is null; }

This wouldn't work with nested structs though.
