I think I got it this time.  But it's ugly and slow (lookup speed could be improved with an indexed array, but you'd need some sort of allocation routine to find an empty slot).

class X
{
  private static int[int] _mutable; // could be private global variable also
  private int instance;
  private static int uid = 0;

  this()
  {
    instance = uid++;
    mutable = 5; // change to appropriate default value
  }

  const int mutable()
  {
     return _mutable[instance];
  }

  const void mutable(int v)
  {
     _mutable[instance] = v;
  }

  ~this()
  {
     _mutable.remove(instance);
  }
}

Like I said, ugly, but it will work.
