Need help with druntime PR 2838 (fix for issue 11725: aa.dup should return mutable copy)

Basically, the problem is that the new version of AA.dup returns a
mutable copy of an AA, but the compiler is not inferring uniqueness for
the return value so dup'ing an immutable AA (like int[int]) cannot
implicitly convert back to the original type.

I looked at .dup for arrays in object.d, and apparently there's some
kind of trick involving DIP25 that allows the compiler to infer
uniqueness (thereby implicit convertibility to the original type), but I
don't understand how it works or how/whether it can be applied to the AA

Any ideas?
