[std-proposals] Extreme Template Parameter Possibilities

What if we could use template parameters to copy-paste arbitrary text
into the body of a function?

For example let's say we had:

        template<text T>
        int Func(int const arg)
                return arg {<T>} 7;

Then we could use it as follows:

        int main(void)
                return Func<"+">(-7);

This would allow us to do all sorts of things, even:

        template<text special_cleanup>
        int CloseHandle(int const arg)



        int main(void)
                int handle = OpenHandle("readme.txt");
