           Summary: NaNs inside associative array don't use normal FP

I don't know if this is a bug, or if here D/DMD is working as designed. I am
not sure.

This code shows that floating point NaNs are not tested with == inside
associative arrays (because NaNs != NaNs):

import std.stdio: writeln;
void main() {
    int[double] aa;
    aa[double.nan] = 1;
    writeln(aa);
    aa[double.nan] = 2;
    writeln(aa);
}


Output DMD 2.059beta:

[nan:1]
[nan:2]



Python uses == to compare dict (associative array) keys, so NaNs can't
overwrite each other:

>>> a = {}
>>> a[float("nan")] = 1
>>> a
{nan: 1}
>>> a[float("nan")] = 2
>>> a
{nan: 1, nan: 2}


So maybe DMD has to act as Python in this case.
