digitalmars.D.announce - stri: string format/interpolation library for D. how to embed

This library is very similar to Scala or shell scripts.

## example

import stri : s;

// runtime/compile-time variables
auto a = 1;
enum _a0 = "D-lang";
struct A {
     static a = 0.123;
}

// you can use the default %s and custom ones e.g., %.3f
mixin s!"${a} is one. ${_a0} is nice. ${A.a%.3f}" i;
assert(i.str == "1 is one. D-lang is nice. 0.123");

Seems fairly similar to `interp` in scriptlike: https://github.com/Abscissa/scriptlike BTW it wouldn't be so hard to add string interpolation to the language and compiler, there have been two PRs now. This was the latest: https://github.com/dlang/dmd/pull/7988 I think someone just needs to take a bit of time and write a DIP, so that A&W can't say no ;-)
