 I suppose you could do it that way, at least it would definately be readable rather than what i've seen in java (and ASP) before.

 query = "Select * from persons where firstname='"+fname+" and lastname='"+lname+" and age="+age+... ect.ect

 Recently i've started reading about lex and yacc (or flex and bison) and as a comment in there, it wouldn't be too hard to use substitution and have a pre-processor convert it into pure D code.

Select * from persons
where firstname=%fname%
and lastname=%lname%
and age=%age%")

Just a thought.
