This D2 program shows that you can't test if a class reference wrapped with
Rebindable is null:

import std.typecons;
const class Foo {}
void main() {
    auto a = Rebindable!Foo(new Foo);
    a = new Foo;
    assert(a !is null); // err

DMD 2.050 generates:
test.d(6): Error: incompatible types for ((a) !is (null)):
'Rebindable!(const(Foo))' and 'void*'

Is this the currently correct way to do it? (It works):

assert(a.get() !is null); // OK

I have seen the get() method is not documented on the site, so is that a
temporary limitation caused by the unfinished "alis this" implementation?

(Issue tagged with "Component: DMD" because I think it's a limit of "alias
