I disagree. I find that the non-rare case. This is what I'm looking for.
The interesting case is not some specialized function that transforms
the parameters into a string in a specific way, but one that accepts the
parameters as-is and works with them directly.

In my original DIP, I tried to handle both cases, `foo(i"hello $name")`
for `foo(string)` would work. It's a messy situation, and I think it's
the reason there was so much opposition.
Having to type `text` or whatever is a reasonable compromise.

Note that the string interpolation proposal does not preclude this
possibility happening later.
Reasonable people can disagree whether this "makes the feature" or not
