Currently, associative arrays' byKey and byValue methods do not return forward
ranges (although this was the intention). The isForwardRange check fails.

The cause can be reduced to the following code:

struct R
{
    R save() { return this; }
}

void main()
{
    R r1 = void;
    static assert (is(typeof(r1.save) == typeof(r1)));
}

The compiler complains:

test.d(9): Error: static assert  (is(R() == R)) is false

Note the parens in "R() == R".

The problem goes away, if either r1.save is replaced with r1.save(), or the
save method declaration is annotated with  property (despite the -property
switch not being used).
