ndslice of an array structure member?

I'm trying to learn ndslice.  It puzzles me why t3 compiles ok, 
but t4 causes a compiler error in the example below.  Should I be 
able to slice a struct member that is an array?

import std.stdio;
import std.experimental.ndslice;
import std.experimental.ndslice.iteration: transposed;
struct sample{
	ulong [10] core_ctr;

struct block{
	ulong[60] samples;

void main() {
	auto a1 = new sample[60];
	auto t3 = a1.sliced!(ReplaceArrayWithPointer.no)(3,4,5);
	auto b1 = new block;
	auto t4 = b1.samples.sliced!(ReplaceArrayWithPointer.no)(3,4,5);

====== results in error
