What are the plans for this? I really think the current format() implementation needs to go; the use of varargs makes it very annoying to work with since, for example, enum types decay to integral types.

I could start using xformat(), but if that's going to be deprecated at some point, too, well...

...you'd have to do a two second search and replace.

If you're using D and are supporting old builds you're braver than I. Personally I only care about RELEASE and RELEASE-1.

Wwwwait a minute. You have exactly the same problem if format is changed.

No, because it is source compatible in the vast majority of cases. See the discussion linked above.
