We're going to move to a model where Object doesn't even _have_ toString on it.
So, in the long run, the constancy of Object's toString is irrelevant, and
since whether a particular type should have a const toString or not depends on
the type and what it's doing, it's ultimately _not_ a question of consistency.

I'd expect Throwable and its ilk to have a const toString in the long run.
Whether it should be const right now or not, I don't know, since the issue with
Object and its various functions is still being sorted out.
