Can you give an explicit example of code that is harmed by const
correctness? IME, it rather helps code quality than harm it. Besides,
since everything converts to const, it doesn't harm as much code as one
might imagine (most code will be unchanged except where it matters --
which IMO is a good thing).



This sentence is false.
