The python script generates a list of available functions in the 
python package.
This list will be used to generate D coding at compilation time.
That is the reason, the error occurs in a mixin.
Unfortunately one function had the same name as a D keyword (it 
was the keyword deprecated). The fix was to exclude this function 
from the list.

I think this is the only dub package working this way, as it 
might be the only
package which wrapping python code.

Kind regards
