https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17350

          Issue ID: 17350
           Summary: bitmanip checks min, while Ternary does not have this
                    property
           Product: D
           Version: D2
          Hardware: x86_64
                OS: Mac OS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P1
         Component: phobos

Trying this 

import std.bitmanip; 
import std.typecons; 
void main(){}

struct S1
{
    mixin(taggedPointer!(
    Val*, "vv",
    bool, "b1", 1,
    bool, "b2", 1,
    bool, "b3", 1));
}

struct S2
{
    mixin(taggedPointer!(
    Val*, "vv",
    ubyte, "t", 3));
}

struct S3
{
    mixin(taggedPointer!(
    Val*, "vv",
    Ternary, "t", 3));
}

struct Val
{
    size_t dummy; 
}

I got an error: 
bitmanip.d(94,20): Error: no property 'min' for type 'Ternary'
bitmanip.d(127,20): Error: no property 'min' for type 'Ternary'
bitmanip.d(183,15): Error: template instance
std.bitmanip.createAccessors!("_vv_t", Ternary, "t", 3LU, 0LU) error
instantiating
bitmanip.d(243,11): instantiated from here: createFields!("_vv_t", 0LU,
Ternary, "t", 3, ulong, "", 61LU)
bitmanip.d(314,26): instantiated from here: createTaggedReference!(Val*, 8LU,
"vv", Ternary, "t", 3)
test62.d(17,8): instantiated from here: taggedPointer!(Val*, "vv", Ternary,
"t", 3)

I understand, that it is not possible to order a Ternary without
implifications. However, as the size allows it, it should be possible to use it
as a pointer discriminator.
