At least two:

*Bryce Adelstein Lelbach πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦@blelbach*
*std::print is headed for C++23. std::cout is now a code smell.*

And I suspect many people will expect that std::print does something
similar to the other print functions in other languages.

Maybe if it had been called printfmt or something this misunderstanding
could have been avoided. Maybe that would have also left linguistic space
for my proposal as a separate overload set.
