`empty` is not required to be `const`, but it is required to
yield the same result if called multiple times without mutating
the range (see
https://dlang.org/phobos/std_range_primitives.html#.isInputRange). In other words, you really ought not to mutate the range in implementation of `empty`, or at least not to the extent you seem to want to.
