ah yeah I couldn't remember where that one was, I only found the 
2 other DIPs while googling.

I like the overall idea but there is one thing that feels a 
little bad with that: If I have a function

void foo(string header, string docs);

I can't just pass

foo(i"$name's Website", i"Welcome on $name's Website");

because interpolated strings are not strings. I would need an 
extra .text call.

I think it would be easier on users if it was all one big struct 
like `InterpolatedString!(args here...)` - not being able to be 
multiple arguments at once

Otherwise if you had `void foo(T...)(T args)` you could no longer 
iterate over every argument individually, but need to keep track 
of state to know whether you are in an interpolated string. (and 
you don't know when it ends)
