I faced a related situation recently: My error string generation was 
buggy, which taught me that the compiler does not even compile the 
string part of 'static assert' in the 'true' case.

The following program compiles! :)

void main() {
     static assert (true, "hello" / WAT);

I added and removed '&& false' to every 'static assert' condition 
manually one by one. :/

Perhaps a new compiler switch can compile every 'static assert' with an 
automatic 'false' and dump all their text to the output.
