I've seen atoi() and atof() implemented in string.d, why
not itoa() and ftoa() - they are very useful as well.
Yes, sprintf() can be used for this purpose - but why
not provide a conveniet wrapper around it?

OutBuffer will work as a wrapper around it, though I intend to make a collection of toString(type) functions.

That'd be great, since creating an OutBuffer each time it's needed to convert number to string is $#%&. BTW do you mind if I borrow the printf() and vprintf() code from OutBuffer to use in Stream?
