Continuing in the vein of making error messages nicer:

Is there any reason that static assert, which deals with compile time messages, doesn't function the same way as pragma(msg,...), which also deals with compile time messages, w.r.t multiple arguments to the string that can be anything including types?

It just occurred to me that there is a lot of string concatenation and `.stringof` use.
