TypeInfo_Const in object_.d inherits function next(). It has a member, TypeInfo
base.    This is useful for unwrapping Invariant and Const types. But object.di
TypeInfo_Const has no member base but has member next, which would occupy same
memory layout as the member base in object.d.    Trying to access
TypeInfo_Const next, confuses with inherited next, which returns base.next.   
Would like direct  access to the member base please (rename from next in
object.di), just like in TypeInfo_Typedef. Workaround is just to fix it, edit
object.di, TypeInfo_Const, and change name of member next to base.

There appears to be little consistency with this field for TypeInfo.  Some have
a "next" member, some have a "base" member, and some have an "m_next" member. 
I'm afraid I'll break something if I change this, so I'm reassigning to Walter.
 Ideally, all TypeInfo classes will use the same name (like "base") for the
member variable and override next() appropriately.
