It's not: if type deduction is working correctly, then it converts from
const char* to char*, which is legal for const_cast (see 15.2.11p3). I
realise that this is a hack BTW: however the pointed to value is never
actually written too, the const-ness is cast away only to interface with the
You could try putting a C style cast in there to see if that fixes things,
but you're likely see a lot of other errors...
