digitalmars.D.learn - changing the output of `std.stdio.write'

According to this tutorial
   https://wiki.dlang.org/Defining_custom_print_format_specifiers
it seems easy to change the format of the output for 
`std.stdio.writef'.

But why is there no example for changing the output when there 
are no format specifiers?

According to the page you linked, functions that don't take any format specifiers, like `write` and `writeln`, default to `%s`.
