VERY useful and helps make D on Windows feel first class, so it
is easy to do things right.
utf-32 doesn't matter, but "string"w is very, very nice for
working with Windows, .net, java, etc. easily, efficiently, and

The string interpolation thing is cool, I wrote up my proposal,
I'm just not likely to bother with the burden of DIP bureaucracy.

And I use the heredoc strings BECAUSE of how well they can be
highlighted - again my vim happens to treat q"html and q"sql and
q"css and others specially knowing they are embedded.
I could do that with something like css!" " too - a template
instead and the type information could even be improved but still
the heredoc is kinda cool for syntax highlighting.
BTW if heredoc strings were to be removed.... tbh I can live with
it. It bugs me that they must end at the beginning of a line. I
wish it would let you indent it. Seriously bugs me and is a
reason why I don't use them more.
but still since they are there i use them.
