          Issue ID: 14479
           Summary: isInputRange returns false on a slice of noncopyables.
           Product: D
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: x86_64

Example: http://dpaste.dzfl.pl/644619159a4f

import std.range, std.stdio;

struct Noncopyable {
    int num;
     disable this(this);

void main() {

It is believed that this problem is caused by r.front needing to return a value
instead of a reference, in contradiction of the docs, which say "r.front
returns the current element in the range.  It may return by value or by
