// hash.d.  This is part of a library, not the application.  Therefore, it
// is in the import path but is not explicitly passed to DMD
struct HashRange(K, S, ) {
    size_t _length;

    this(S* set) {
        this._length = set.length;


struct StackSet(K) {

    HashRange!(K, typeof(this)) elems() {

     property size_t length() {

// a.d.  This is part of the application.
import hash;

// b.d.  This is also part of the application.
import hash;
