struct S(T){int x;}

template X(T){
    struct S{int x;}

void main(){
    pragma(msg, S!int); // "struct S"
    pragma(msg, X!int); // X!(int)
    pragma(msg, X!int.S); // "S", why not identical to first one?

The fact that for eponymous templates the template parameters are not shown
sometimes has a severe negative impact on the readability of error messages, as
well as on the usefulness of debug output via pragma(msg)

I propose that .stringof for eponymous templates should apply to the template
instance instead of to the eponymous declaration.
