You're comparing apples and oranges. When benchmarking, at least
look at the generated assembly first.
replace is not in Phobos, it's a D runtime vestige. It's not
getting inlined even in release builds with lto, whereas that
manual version would. Also, benchmark with runtime strings, not
literals, otherwise the compiler might even swallow the thing
What you're benchmarking is, basically, inlined optimized search
in a literal versus a function call.
