This D2 program uses writeln to print a lazy sequence of integers:

import std.stdio: writeln;
import std.algorithm: map;
void main() {
    auto r = map!q{a+1}([1, 2, 3]);

Output with dmd 2.048:
[2, 3, 4]

But when I print a lazy sequence I'd like some cue in the textual output that
the data being printed isn't an array.

In theory the delimiters can just be omitted for lazy sequences, but then if
you print a collection of lazy sequences you can't where one sequence ends and
the successive ends. So it's better to use delimiters, but different ones.

So this is a possible better output:
(2, 3, 4)
