That's one of those bugs that even if a solution gets implemented, it won't get accepted and pulled in. Soweone up top needs to figure out how they want it to be implemented in an acceptable manor first. From the looks of the issue comments, and how long the issue has been open. Seems like there's no solution that's deemed acceptable enough by said individuals to be implemented.

IMHO, it would be _huge_ if this issue could be fixed. The whole issue with "multiple context pointers" can get really annoying, and it can't always be reasonably worked around. However, I don't recall anyone ever coming up with even a theoretical solution for the problem. So, I have no idea what it's going to take to fix it, and I don't have high hopes that it will be. But maybe we'll get lucky, and someone will get an epiphany or divine inspiration or whatnot, and we'll finally get a fix. Hope springs eternal... - Jonathan M Davis

Access to multiple contexts through one context pointer is already implemented and works: https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=5710#c38

And to quote Andrei: "We need to pursue this like a bloodhound and aggressively make as many cases as possible work transparently. This is a major asset of D over virtually all other languages."

Yep, I've run into that. The workarounds suck, and the worst part is that the error is leaking implementation details to the user that have a very unsatisfactory explanation. I get that the reason is solid, but it doesn't look that way when you look at all the other stuff the compiler can handle. It reminds me of Swift errors that an expression is too complicated for it to figure out. -Steve
