digitalmars.D.learn - ddoc missing alias definition

Take a look at: http://www.digitalmars.com/d/2.0/phobos/std_date.html

On the first few lines there's:
alias d_time;

Where's the type that d_time aliases to? I've tried using the default
style.ddoc from http://www.digitalmars.com/d/2.0/ddoc.html, but I still can't
print out the name of the aliased type. The same thing happens with typedefs.

Is this a bug?

Well, if it's not, it's begging for an enhancement request. I'd suggest filing it as a bug. It may get changed to an enhancment request, but I really do think that it should say what is being aliased, not just what the new name is, which is obviously what you were expecting as well. - Jonathan M Davis
