I'm not sure I like this.  What, exactly, would be the semantic difference
between the rvalue b and the rvalue b[]?  Currently, they are the same, and
changing this might be confusing.

This is how D behaves currently.

Making it a _syntax_ error cannot be done, because D's grammar is context-free
by design.
