Anyone who does not understand that char* is _not_ a string will continue to
make mistakes like trying to concatenate a char* to a string (
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/11914070/why-can-i-not-concatenate-a-constchar-to-a-string-in-d
) or try and pass string directly to a C function. They will constantly run
into problems when dealing with strings. char* is _not_ a string and should not
be treated as such. Treating it as a string with something like writeln will
just help further the misconception that char* is a string and hinder people
learning and using D. D programmers need to understand the difference between
char* and string. char* should _not_ be treated as special, because it's not.
