Currently, whenever you write a template to be mixed into another type, you
specify at the other type how to use the template. Most templates that are made
to be mixed in, will not be used in any other way. Hence, I propose that
templates may marked 'mixin' at declaration point, and 'mixin' be deemed
unnecessary at their point of use. 'mixin' should still be usable for unadorned
templates, and should be a no-op for mixin templates.

Proposed syntax:

mixin template foo( T ) {
  T x;
}

struct bar {
  foo!( int );
}

A two-part addendum:

1. As D's CTFE improves, there's been more and more reason to generate a string
mixin using CTFE instead of a template. Simen's point that "Most templates that
are made to be mixed in, will not be used in any other way" is also true for
CTFE functions. So this enhancement request should also be extended to CTFE
functions in addition to templates:

-----------------------
mixin string foo2() {
    return "int a;";
}
foo2();
a = 7;
-----------------------

2. It is probably worth noting that this enhancement request can be used to
trivially re-implement the current string mixin:

-----------------------
mixin string mixinString(string str) {
    return str;
}
mixinString("int a;");
-----------------------

I don't know if D had mixins or template mixins back in 2010, these look like
old ideas (?). Reopen if necessary.

These are still valid ideas and D did had templates back in 2010. Half of the
proposal is already implemented, you can prefix a template declaration with
"mixin". When a template is prefix with "mixin" you cannot use it like a
regular template. But you still need the "mixin" keyword when mixing in the
template.
