Sometimes I wonder if you even bother to read posts to understand.

This is a problem with YOUR DIP. Where you said, "what's wrong 
with that, it's working as intended".

    void CreateWindow(string title, int w = -1, int h = -1);

    int a;
    CreateWindow(i"Title $a");
    // becomes
    CreateWindow("Title %s", a);

That's what your fine with, that's what the DIP your wrote would 

It's like you are just reading what you want to, instead of 
actually understanding what people are saying. I'd have more luck 
talking to a brick wall at the rate this thread is going, jesus.
