I would vote for choosing the standard we want vsnprintf() to follow (probably

less-preferred variants.


Do you care about the snprintf behavior on very large buffers (larger than INT_MAX)? Then there's further complication, and it's an area where glibc behavior is likely to change in the future (because it is claimed that C99 and POSIX conflict, and glibc implements neither behavior).
