struct Foo
    int _val;

    @property int val()() { return _val; }
    int get() { return val; }  // fail

void main()
    Foo bar;
    auto x = bar.val;  // ok

Error: cannot implicitly convert expression (val()) of type void to int

Note how I can call the property function without errors from outside Foo's
methods, however from inside its methods I can't.

The *real* issue here is that I can't overload templated and non-templated
functions. In my own code I have a templated setter and want to use a
non-templated getter. However that can't work right now due to bugs, so I'm
forced to make the getter a template by adding an empty set of parens. 

But as you can see, this introduces yet another new bug. :/
