To use it people will need to understand how to use d tuples as 
well. This seems like optimizing for betterC? Why not optimize 
for the D case? Do you know how many users even use betterC?

People will write writeln(i”$var bananas”) and see it not work, 
and not understand why. The most basic case doesn’t work either 
with this proposal (assigning a what-you-intuitively-think is a 
string to a string).
