The library support down to C++11 when using boost, or C++17 at minimum in
standalone mode. As for why the lack of constexpr, it simply can be done

There is no difficulty in determining the size, but there is the problem
that the size of the resulting string will be irrespective of the number of
characters contained within, which is not a problem for a string literal.
