struct A
{
  void f()
  {
    SecBuffer b;
    b.clear(); //fail
  }
  private:
  import core.sys.windows.sspi;
  static void clear(ref SecBuffer sb)
  {
    sb.BufferType=SECBUFFER_EMPTY;
  }
}
alias clear=A.clear;

It is undesirable to declare extension methods at global scope if they use
local imports.
