I see what you are doing there. Unfortunately, the innermost 
delegate (the one doing the copy trick) somehow got @system 
attribute, which leads to the following compile errors (I added 
line numbers and reordered your code in the citation above):

constiter.d(78): Error: cannot implicitly convert expression 
(__dgliteral2) of type void delegate(ref int i) @system to int 
delegate(ref int)
constiter.d(77): Error: cast has no effect in expression 
constiter.d(74): Error: cannot implicitly convert expression 
(__dgliteral1) of type void delegate(int delegate(ref int) dg) 
@system to int delegate(int delegate(ref int))

Where does this @system come from? How do I get rid of it?

Can you point me to the bugreport so I can vote for it? I'm not 
sure if it is #4838 or if they are unrelated.
