While working on another patch I realized that value_aggregate_elt's
"name" parameter ought to be const.  This patch implements this.

2014-03-27  Tom Tromey  <tromey@redhat.com>

	* valops.c (value_aggregate_elt, value_struct_elt_for_reference)
	(value_namespace_elt, value_maybe_namespace_elt): Make "name"
	const.
	* value.h (value_aggregate_elt): Update.

Any reason for delaying the push on these types of patches?
I think constifications are geneally a good thing and that
there is no real incentive into holding them before pushing...

Thanks!

Joel> Any reason for delaying the push on these types of patches?

A while ago I was asked not to commit things without a waiting period.
So I wait at least a week unless I think it is truly obvious and
controversy-free; or if someone asks for the patch earlier.
My belief is that constification has not been without its battles, hence
the wait.

I'm checking this in now.
