This code fails to compile

import std.algorithm;
import std.range;

struct Foo {}

void main()
{
    auto f = Foo();
    auto foos = [f];
    auto foo = foos.map!(x => "foo");
    auto bar = foo.chain("bar");
}

giving this string of errors:

The code shouldn't compile. It's trying to chain an array of strings and a
string. The types don't match. However, the error is _horrible_. Since the
given arguments won't compile with chain, they shouldn't pass chain's template
constraint (either that or chain must have a series of static asserts which
output informative error messages for types which won't work with chain). But
obviously, chain's template constraint is passing with arguments which fail to
compile with chain, and that needs to be fixed.
