This is why all that `std.meta.Alias` was necessary in the first 
place.

We must eliminate `Alias` and fix this insanity in the language.

Please implement proper unification for alias, not just another hack. https://forum.dlang.org/post/augmegssadjgrzvfhofk forum.dlang.org Cheers!

Thanks for being more present in the forums "again" (not irony 😅) We need to get D in shape, and soundness is of most importance imo. With some guidance, D can/will be a wonderful language. Currently, it's a *powerful and capable* language, and that only gets you so far. Power without consistency is like a rocket that doesn't work on Mondays
