It's a canary. printf has a very simple interface, and if string interpolation
doesn't work for simple cases, it is indicative of complexity problems.
Along with, of course, everybody uses printf and printf-style functions (dmd has
many), and writef also uses a printf-style format.
I emphasize that #DIP1027 knows nothing about printf or its formats, other than
having the default format be `%s`. The default can, of course, be overridden.
Again, DIP1027 KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT PRINTF OR ITS FORMATS.
