Allowing the caller to mutate the return value is fine because the caller
had a non-const |this| to begin with. We're not making anything less
const-safe. Casting away const on |this|, OTOH, allows you to mutate
objects even when you never had permission to begin with. Much different.
In any case, my intent is to proceed as Darin and I discussed.
