I don't know if someone wrote this one for format string. But there's
Python3-like string template in Artanis, say:
((make-string-template "foo ${bar} ${baz}") #:bar "bleh" #:baz "wonk")
I think it does the similar thing.

If you're interested in it, you may easily port it from Artanis. But you
need irregex as well.
