Whether or not interpolated strings
have anything to do with encouraging
"ephemeral codes," I don't want to
make people think C++ as "made for
good® programming" irrelevant to how
you define "good." Bjarne included
"provide comprehensive support for
each supported style" as one of C++'s
design rules for a reason.
