I think the D language should give programmers the tools they 
need to write good code, and should trust programmers to use the 
tools it gives them responsibly.

If D can't trust programmers to use this style of interpolated 
string (that lowers to an argument list) responsibly, then it 
shouldn't have them at all. A crippled version like DIP 1036 is 
not the solution.
