UFC creating name conflict

Hi D

I have and old C structure that I have to wrap that has a member 
named '.seconds', and in the module that handles this I also have 
conversion functions to go from an internal time representation 
to struct SysTime values.

Unfortunately importing `core.time` brings in a seconds function, 
which due to UFC is confused with a structure member of the same 

How can I explicitly tell the compiler that I'm referring to:
thing.seconds  # The structure member
and not
seconds(thing) # the function

Currently my code fails to compile due do this ambiguity.

Thanks for any advice you can give.  My google searches with the 
qualifier `site:dlang.org` weren't turning up any hits.
