Summary: Can't declare struct, assign lvalue to it in same

struct Bar {
    uint num;

    Bar opAssign(uint otherNum) {
        num = otherNum;
        return this;

void main() {
    uint foo = 1;
    Bar bar = foo;  // Error:  e2ir:  cannot cast from uint to Bar.
    Bar bar2;
    bar2 = foo;   // Works.

Not sure if this is actually a valid bug, since the spec states that "The
assignment operator cannot be overloaded for rvalues that can be implicitly
cast to the lvalue type."  However, if the previous sentence does implicitly
disallow this from working, it should be stated more clearly, instead of in a
single sentence of language legalese.
