           Summary: Non-intuitive behavior for pointers to aggregates
                    defining opSlice

struct HasOpSlice
    int opSlice() { return 10; }

void main()
    HasOpSlice* pointer;
    int i = pointer[];

test.d(9): Error: need upper and lower bound to slice pointer

this behave consistently in the case that there's an opSlice that takes two
