            Bug ID: 129
           Summary: Diagnostic bug in casting to array types.
           Product: GDC
           Version: development
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Normal
         Component: gdc
          Assignee: ibuclaw gdcproject.org
          Reporter: ibuclaw gdcproject.org

The following code:

auto v = cast(int[5]) [1,2,3,4];

Emits the error: conversion to non-scalar type requested.

Which from a diagnostic perspective, is not at all informative - maybe the
column support from 2.066 development will remedy things a little better, but
at least we should move away from this GCC-style message and be more verbose.
