Bug or Feature?
G'day

I was wondering whether the following is a bug in dmd or a feature in D:

module a:

class TClass ( T )
{
}

class Foo
{
	private struct Test
	{		
	}
}


module b:

import a;

class Bar : TClass!(Foo.Test)
{
}


void main()
{
	auto var = new Bar;
}


dmd a.d b.d


This works for me, no compilation errors. Why can module b access Foo.Test  
for the template parameter?

Re: Bug or Feature?
It's a bug. Private members are not supposed to be visible in other modules.
If it isn't already filed in bugzilla, it should.
We'd much appreciate if you filed a bug for the bugs you find:
