Thanks. Sorry I'm too lazy to do that myself lol -- kinda busy studying 
for exams and whatnot. (I really shouldn't be even working on this right 
now. :P)

Also, I just wanted to note:

I've found a bunch of these bugs as a result of trying to *work around* 
the previous bugs (!!!). For example, this one was a result of trying to 
fix the opApply-with-inout issue, by copy/pasting the code for the const 
and non-const versions.
But I guess it turned out mixins didn't play well with that?

_This_ fact (where working around one bug causing another) is why D's 
const looks broken to me. Hope it makes sense why I've been complaining 
about it so much!
