In the site documentation of std.exception.assumeUnique there is code like:

 string letters()
   char[] result = new char['z' - 'a' + 1];
   foreach (i, ref e; result)
     e = 'a' + i;
   return assumeUnique(result);

But recent improvements of the D language make assumeUnique useless in this
case, this compiles:

string lowercase() pure nothrow {
    auto result = new char['z' - 'a' + 1];
    foreach (i, ref c; result)
        c = cast(char)('a' + i);
    return result;
void main() {}

On the other hand currently (DMD 2.056head) 'a'+i can't be assigned to a char
because the compiler doesn't see that the variable 'i' will never become too
much big.

So in the documentation of std.exception.assumeUnique I suggest to explain that
some usages (where the function is pure) of assumeUnique are not needed now.
