In my opinion, the benefits are not worth the extra complication in this case.
I cannot realy imagine much more that could be optimized in addtion to string concatenation.

In in this case there is an easy way for optimazation, when it is required (using +=).
So if the performance does matter, user has a simple solution.
If the performance is not important, there is not need for complication, that such
a framework would bring.

Just my $0.03
