This looks like it could be a bug to me. If you explicitly 
instantiate the nested template and call dispatch like 
dispatch!(nested!0) then it works.

An alias template parameter can accept both a template and an 
instantiated template. I.e.

template X(T) {}
alias A = X; // ok
alias B = X!int; // ok

So it's unclear what should happen. At the least, the defaulted 
argument should be applied at the call site (Func(a)).

Note though that neither versions will work on ldc or gdc 
however. Because there's a bug [0] that has only been fixed in 
for dmd.
