Second part. I don't see a case for const containers at all.
Fully immutable functional style ones - sure, I have actually
experimented implementing cache this way in
https://github.com/Dicebot/mood/blob/master/source/mood/storage/generic_cache.d (thing that powers blog.dicebot.lv). But what would you use const containers for? Mixing mutable and immutable elements in one container? That sounds like a source of much trouble.
