This is a spinoff of Issue 5466

There is a common need to have a (lazy) range of keys and their corresponding
values of an associative array. Sometimes iterating them in parallel with a
foreach is not enough, and performing a lookup for each key generated by byKeys
is not efficient.

So I suggest to state in the D docs that if the associative array is not
modified in the iteration, its byKey and byValue yield corresponding key-values
(this is currently true, but not guaranteed to be true in all D

This means that this will always be true in all future D implementations:

zip(aa.byKey, aa.byValue) === aa.byPair
