yeah, but dmd's parser was written by hand so it's not surprising there
are inconsistency's with what works where.
I finally found the bit where it describes associative array literals
and they look identical to initialising a flat array, so god only knows
which one gets picked when. It would be better if they where made different.
My enormous talent is exceeded only by my outrageous laziness.
