           Summary: No selective static imports
           Product: D
           Version: 0.163
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: rejects-valid
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: DMD
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: deewiant gmail.com

I'm not sure if this should be allowed, but it seems to me that the
specification doesn't disallow it:

static import std.stdio : writefln;

void main() {

Currently this doesn't compile, as the import works the same way as it would
without the "static". This is, in a way, understandable, as normal selective
imports leave the imported module's name undefined. I nevertheless feel that
this is a small loss in functionality.

Allowing this might introduce a new issue, however. Consider the following:

static import std.stdio : foo = writefln;

void main() {

The above might make it seem as though there is something called foo in the
std.stdio package.
