digitalmars.D - test.d(22): Error: cannot append type test.Path to type test.Path

This is due to the changing some code that was appending. 
Obviously we can't append a type to itself.

Would be nice if the error message was more clear like:

Type test.Path is not an array. Cannot append to itself.

You *can* append a type to itself: struct Path { Path opBinary(string op)(ref const Path other) if (op == "~") { return Path.init; } } Path a, b; Path c = a ~ b; That's why the error message isn't clearer.
