What are properties if not "getters" and "setters"? From the original post: "It would generate 2 methods "num": one to set num_ and one to get its value."

Two methods named "num". No "get" or "set" in sight.

Sorry to bump, but it also isn't hard to use mixins to write more generic get/set.

import std.stdio : writeln;

struct Foo
        private int a;
        private int b;
        void set(string variable)(int x) @property
                mixin(variable ~ " = x;");
        int get(string variable)() @property
                return mixin(variable);

void main()
        Foo foo;

I suppose the errors will be more cryptic, since you don't check if the string referers to an existing member.

You provide only get/set that return by value. So you may need to generate getters/setters for const values, for ref values, for const ref values... And it would result in much more code for every object.
