Hi Guys,

while building newCTFE is ran into a really nasty bug.
Which took me hours to find, but with CTFE and __traits it is 
preventable and will never haunt me again.
Because I was so happy that I could prevent this bug;
I want to share it with the whole world:

Great video. I also use static assert a lot for checking stuff like this. Combined with CTFE and D's introspection capabilities it's extremely useful if you need to, for example, ensure that the members of two structs are in the same order, or that their members stay in sync.
