It would be nice if this worked:

struct S1 { int f; }
struct S2
    S1 s1;
    alias s1.f g;

The error message, which occurs only when trying to access "g", is also
somewhat confusing:

Error: struct test.S2 'f' is not a member
Error: struct test.S2 member f is not accessible
Error: this for f needs to be type S1 not type S2

A more general solution would be to allow aliasing expressions, but it sounds
like a large language change which would require some discussion first.
