cast() is supposed to remove all attributes from a type, but in the case of
arrays, it does nothing to the tail.

I think cast() should remove even the tail.

Note that arrays *already* implicitly cast to their tail versions.  i.e.:

const(T[]) implicitly casts to const(T)[]
immutable(T[]) implicitily casts to immutable(T)[]

so to have:

cast()const(T[]) result in const(T)[] serves no purpose, I need no cast there.

The same goes for pointers, and if they are ever implemented, tail-const object
