I think, then, that we should just get rid of the static initialization of
static arrays thing.  I've been using D on a daily basis for ~2.5 years and I
didn't know it existed.  I've never actually seen it used in any D code
anywhere.  IIRC it's not mentioned in TDPL, and it certainly creates a horrible
ambiguity.  If this feature is really that important, maybe it could be moved
to a library and handled with CTFE.  Here's a quick and dirty example of such a
function, which could be tested, fleshed out, etc.

auto staticInitializeStaticArray(T...)(T args) {
    static assert(args.length % 2 == 0);
    T[1][T.length / 2] ret;

    foreach(ti, arrIndex; args) {
        if(ti % 2 == 1) {

        ret[arrIndex] = args[ti + 1];

    return ret;
