   void format(OutputRange)(string source_desc, ubyte[] buffer, OutputRange 
output, FormatterConfig* formatterConfig)

isn't quite set up as an algorithm. An algorithm would look like:

   auto format(InputRange)(InputRange r, string source_desc, FormatterConfig* 

and would return another input range.
