Summary: Safe casts: type modifiers

C++ has const_cast to add or remove const modifier from type. Currently in D
casting to/from const is unsafe as it doesn't protect from type conversions.
Safe variants of const casts can be added with the following syntax:
cast(const)obj; //to const-qualified
cast(~const)obj; //to mutable
cast(immutable)obj; //instead of assumeUnique
I'm not sure whether cast(~const) should behave exactly as cast(~immutable).
P.S. This doesn't impose any additional requirement on the runtime library.
