It's not a requirement, but it's more than a convention. If you
use the container with foreach, the compiler will call opSlice
on the container to get a range. So, there's no need to
implement opApply to iterate over a container with foreach. You
could choose to implement a container with opApply and use a
function other than opSlice for getting a range, but the
compiler understands enough to try to slice the container for
you automatically when using it with foreach.

Is this documented in the language spec anywhere? I don't see
anything about it in the section on foreach  or the section on
slice operator overloading .
