simple test case:

import std.stdio;

class C { int x; }

void foo(const(C)[] arg)
  auto arg2 = arg.dup;
  foreach(c; arg2) c.x = 5;

void main()
  C[] arr;
  arr ~= new C;
  writefln("%d", arr[0].x);

This compiles and outputs 5.

I believe dup should statically fail if the element type has any references in
it and the type is const or invariant.

Likewise, I think idup should fail if the element type has any references in
it.  These properties are not supposed to be "you're on your own" territory
