I'm not sure exactly where it is in the docs but that's perfectly 

Any declaration with initialization of a struct is turned into a 
construction call if it can. If not, it tries to treat it as a 
struct literal.

I guess this is as close as it comes:

"Struct constructors are used to initialize an instance of a 
struct when a more complex construction is needed than is allowed 
by static initialization or a struct literal. "

Which sends you back up here:

showing the = syntax.

opAssign is only used AFTER the struct has already been declared.
