Bug Description

There are many places in the code that use const_cast<> to remove constness. In almost all of them this is a bandaid around coding problems that are reminiscent of Attila the Hun's pillaging.

Each instance should be examined, understood, and then the code path needs to be changed so that the const_cast is not required and the constness can be maintained.
