You're trying to override a member variable? Or are you trying to override the 
dot operator? You can't override either. You can override member _functions_. 
You can overload a number of operators, but not the dot operator. You can also 
use alias this or opDispatch to call functions that your object doesn't have, 
but you're still dealing with functions. It sounds like you're essentially 
trying to override a member variable, and you can't do that. It's just data. 
There's no function call. There's nothing to override.
