Spent some time debugging because I didn't notice it at first,
essentially something like this:
int foo = [1, 2, 3];
foo = 5;
writeln(foo); // 5, 5, 5
Why does such code compile? I don't think this should be permitted,
because it's easy to make a mistake (when you wanted foo[index] but
forgot the ). If someone wants to assign a value to every element they
could do foo = 5; instead which is explicit.
That's a feature. I don't think it's going away. The problem of
accidental assignment is probably not very common.
