digitalmars.D.learn - msgpack-d: package import; 64 bit

Here a condensed version of the problem I encountered after 
updating to
msgpack-d 1.0.3 and not merging a local patch of this [1] line:

```sub.d
module sub;
import l2;
void foo ()
{
    import std.stdio: writeln;
    bar();
    auto fn = &isDir!string;
    writeln (`isDir fn ptr = `, fn);
}

unittest {
    foo;
}
```

```l2/package.d
module l2;

void bar ()
{
    import std.stdio: writeln;
    writeln ("this is ", __PRETTY_FUNCTION__);
}

version (unittest) {
    package import std.file;
}

unittest {
}
```

$ dmd -i -unittest -main -run sub
this is void l2.bar()
isDir fn ptr = 123456
2 unittests passed

$  dmd -i -c sub
sub.d(7): Error: template instance isDir!string template isDir is 
not defined

One interesting part about "package import" is

    "By the way, `package import` seems to work just like `public 
import`,
     not restricting anything. Looks like a compiler bug." [2]

 From now on I will use only selective imports.

IFAICS the unittest works perfectly with a plain vanilla import. 
BTW:
---------------------------- src/msgpack/packer.d 
-----------------------------
index d92a74e..77bcf07 100644
   -1129,8 +1129,7    unittest
          }
      }

-    version (X86_64) // can't create a long enough array to 
trigger this on x86
-    { // larger spec size for string / binary
+    static if ((byte*).sizeof > 4) {
          mixin DefinePacker;

          try {
