Auto-decoding is a significant issue for the applications I
work on (search engines). There is a lot of string manipulation
in these environments, and performance matters. Auto-decoding
is a meaningful performance hit. Otherwise, Phobos has a very
nice collection of algorithms for string manipulation. It would
be great to have a way to turn auto-decoding off in Phobos.
Well you can use byCodeUnit, which disables auto-decoding
Though it's not well-known and rather annoying to explicitly add
it almost everywhere.
