Look, discussions get heated sometimes. Some arguments are better than
others. I have no problem
taking some arguments serious and while thinking some others don't hold. And
I see no reason why
you shoudln't be able to do that either.
It is still a big whole in the type system and it should quite frankly be
easy for most to see that, let alone experienced
programmers that have advocated const-corretness in other contexts.
