Is basic_string_literal in the log library? I'll have to look at that,

As for c++11 udsl, basically one can define a suffix for a particular type of string, and a corresponding handler operator, which takes a pointer to the literal and a size (length) value - which is determined at compile-time, hence no need for internal calls to strnlen (multipasses) or inefficient loops of pushing 1 char at-a-time to a stream(file, stdout etc..).
