When you want to use the "myArray.myFuncTakingAnArray()" syntax on an array
that's returned from a function, it fails to compile if the array-returning
function is called using "getArray" instead of "getArray()".

char[] getArray()
{ return "hello"; }

void useArray(char[] str)
{ /* stuff */ }

void main()
        int i;
        i = getArray().length; // Ok
        i = getArray.length;   // Ok

        getArray().useArray(); // Ok
        getArray.useArray();   // Error: no property 'useArray' for type
