Hmm indeed, C++ has both the const_cast<>() thingy and the template
system is powerful enough to actually implement const_cast<>() inside
the language.

But I cannot find anything useful for C. Your attempt to use the rvalue
type to hopefully obtain a const-less lvalue type is clever, but does
indeed fail where the rvalue is const too.
