Nested structs keep a frame pointer (or something alike) to be able to access
anything inside main, from outside of main. As such, you can't use them (as is)
as a template parameter.

HOWEVER, you can declare your struct as "static" explicitly stating that the
struct does not keep any extra info, at which point it becomes useable:

T fun(T)() if(is(T == struct)) {
   T s;
   return s;
}

void main() {
   static struct R {
       void f() { }
   }

   auto m = fun!R();
}
