Spent some time debugging because I didn't notice it at first, essentially something like this:

int[3] 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.

What's your opinion on using that syntax in the initial declaration, like `float[16] foo = 0`?
