The documentation for AAs gives out this example (<https://dlang.org/spec/hash-map.html#static_initialization>):

    immutable long[string] aa = [
      "foo": 5,
      "bar": 10,
      "baz": 2000
    ];

    unittest
    {
        assert(aa["foo"] == 5);
        assert(aa["bar"] == 10);
        assert(aa["baz"] == 2000);
    }

This isn't actually supported:

<https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6238>
<https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1578>

Given how long this limitation has persisted, wouldn't it be best to remove that section from the documentation?

It should probably just be changed to used a shared static constructor. e.g.

immutable long[string] aa;

shared static this()
{
    aa = ["foo": 5,
          "bar": 10,
          "baz": 2000];
}

since that does work.
