The documentation on std.conv claims that to! will use a method called to in a
class to make conversions. This has not been true for some time now.

Sorry, was testing it on classes, but the to function is used when it is not a
class.

So I have made it an enhancement request. And the request is either to allow it
for classes also, or remove it for non-classes and use opCast instead.

The `to` method version is now deprecated and opCast is expected instead:
