Well, the DIP does not propose string building, it is basically
string-splitting with a bit of mixin… (kinda)
Anyway, you could define constants for SELECT, FROM and WHERE and
get even better syntax:
```sql(SELECT, r, r, FROM, t, WHERE, c)```
Then let sql escape-wrap the parameters.

Ok, but maybe you could write even better libraries if D added
custom literals instead? :-)

I use it everywhere in Python. The details matters a lot for it
to increase readability.
I just wish D would focus more on providing generic solutions
than N narrow special cases. I think these special cases are
pushed in because people in the forums are too impatient to wait
for the emergence of a generic solution. Understandable, but not
good for the compiler/language over time.
