 I guess it exists because of a few use cases other than this one.

It's sometimes nice to be able to break up really long string literals, but it looks like it's mostly a C holdover. In C it helps with some preprocessor macros, but D doesn't have preprocessor macros, so the main reason for having it isn't there. Either way, it's not exactly a make or break feature. Cheers, Pillsy
