actually, from my PoV solution is supereasy: just remove ALL visibility restrictions for traits. and i mean all. allMembers should return all members, getMember should allow to access *any* existing member without annoying messages. it is up to programmer to insert getProtection checks if he needs it.


traits is a low-level feature by definition, and doesn't meant to be used directly (we have std.traits wrappers for that), so i want D devs to stop making our, low-level coders, life harder than it is now. ;-)

D devs just should draw the line between __traits and std.traits. first sould be inherently unsafe, allow *everything* and impose as little restrictions as it is possible (note: *as* *possible*, not *as* *sane* -- all kind of insanity should be allowed, if it is possible). then, std.traits wrappers should use __traits to build *safe* things (declaring that @trusted in the end).
