I've used it. Sometimes you have an open file that your results go to, and
you want to print stuff to it just like you would want to do with a normal
print (newline at the end, space between the arguments, etc), and then it's
the convenient way to do it.
I can live with the syntax, too. It's pretty mnemonic for "print to" for me.
But still I don't think I'll use it much - the situation where it's useful
just doesn't occur often in my code.
