Isn't const const(char)[] equivalent to invariant(char[]) ?

It doesn't seem to matter whether the brackets are inside or outside the parens.  Only the char part is made const or invariant.  I did some testing, and couldn't find any difference.  Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

If you're talking about the difference between const and invariant: const means that the contents of the array can't be changed through that reference.  invariant means that no other reference can change the contents either.

This article explains it well:
