gdisplay.c: gdisplay_format_title()
(It may have moved in 1.3.x)

It's a large switch statement, with hard-coded characters and their
expansions.  If different expansions are needed, perhaps its time to
write a function (eg expand_format()) which takes a format string, an
environment, and a table of format chars and their expansions.  I
didn't do it this way originally because it was more complicated and
at the time there was really only one set of format chars.

If now we're expansing different format strings, then perhaps the time
has come to generalise the code.
