Also, if you do not need to write to a stream or a range and just
need the value, `format("%s", value)` works as well as std.conv's
But between the two functions, it seems that the only difference
is that `formattedWrite` only accepts the exact values that go on
the output range (such as an integer), and `formatValue` has
extra logic to convert structs, classes, and unions into strings
by calling their `toString()` method.
