A low priority enhancement request (in Bugzilla I'd like to be able to give an
importance high, or low, to enhancement requests too):


void main() {
    'a';
    1;
    2U;
    3UL;
    4.0f;
}


dmd 2.064alpha gives:

test.d(2): Error: long has no effect in expression ('a')
test.d(3): Error: long has no effect in expression (1)
test.d(4): Error: long has no effect in expression (2u)
test.d(5): Error: long has no effect in expression (3LU)
test.d(6): Error: double has no effect in expression (4.00000)


I think those error messages should be improved a little, printing the correct
type name.
