What I'm doing is basically this:

I would've expect the compiling to be before the error message,
but the compiled after the error message.
However it seems like it doesn't do that, but as I can't
reproduce it I'm just wondering what causes it.
The compiler is free to examine your source code in any order
that produces the same artifacts on success and self-consistent
error messages otherwise. In this case, it evaluated the pragmas
and the `mixin` in one pass, then the function body in a separate
The best way I've found to debug mixins is to pragma(msg) the
code I wanted to mix in, then insert it myself.
