This program shows that you are allowed to initialize a single const char
inside static this() and struct constructor, but you are not allowed to
initialize the items of a char array:

const char gc;
const char[1] ga;
static this() {
    gc = 'a';    // OK
    ga[0] = 'a'; // line 5, Err
struct Foo {
    const char cc;
    const char[1] array;
    this(char c) {
        cc = c;       // OK
        array = [c];  // line 12, Err
        array[0] = c; // line 12, Err
void main() {}

DMD 2.053:
temp.d(5): Error: ga[0] isn't mutable
temp.d(12): Error: slice this.array[] is not mutable
temp.d(13): Error: this.array[0] isn't mutable

I'd like to initialize the arrays too.
