Consider:

struct A {
    A fun() { return A.init; }
}

typedef A B;

void main() {
    B b;
    B c = b.fun();
}

The return type of a member of A must be automatically cast to B when used
through a typedef. This is in order to allow B support the same methods as A.
It is also consistent with typedefs of built-in types.

Dropping typedef, so won't fix.
