This is continuing the tradition of changing the compiler to special-case associative arrays. Although this works, I think it would be great to transfer an increasing amount of responsibility from the compiler to the associative array type included in druntime object.d.

To @andralex
Yes, I had planned it first, but discarded it by following reasons.

  • Current dmd compiler translates aa.remove() to special AST node RemoveExp.
  • CTFE interpreter uses RemoveExp to support AA operation.
