struct S
{
    template T()
    {
        bool get() { return true; }
        enum bool T = get();
    }
}

void main()
{
    S s;

    S.T!();  // NG
    s.T!();  // NG
}

The 'get' function cannot be called even if we have a this reference. But I
don't think the above should require a this reference. It's an inner method
that doesn't touch any fields of struct S.

The workaround is to mark the inner function as static.
