Yes, it has been faster in past, when I last check and optimeze 
to!string. But because of @nogc it has been rewriten to Range 
base version which is slower. In this case it makes sense to add 
special version without @nogc (to!string will allocate memory 
anyway) which just use dup on buffer instead of make Range.

I will probably make pull request tomorrow.
