A few questions. (Please forgive me if they are answered in the docs, I haven't

- Have you considered using _1, _2, _3 instead of s1, ... for capturing
paretheses? You could also use them as placeholders in statically-bound format
- have you considered overloading operator/ to emulate perl syntax for
substitution. E.g.,

    sub/expr/fmt, or just
