My formulation was ambiguous, it is the same precedence as the link says. The link also says that's it's right to left evaluation. This means that for expression:

    a ? b = c : d = e;

right to left evaluation will make the = e assignment higher priority than the b = c assignment or the ternary even if they have the same priority level.

To summarize: C++ works as expected and C prevents the assigment because the conditional operator does not yield an l-value:


Now, the only thing is to clearly define what it is in D, as apparently it is neither the C++ nor the C behaviour. The old precedence table on the D wiki seems to say it is like C, but the example of that thread seems to show it's not.
