This is all good but I think that self-inconsistent format strings are

see the code try a little harder to validate the input data.

Agreed, but so far it doesn't look like there's much overlap between
the parsing and validating code and the stuff I'm playing with.

I'll keep an eye out for any opportunities to improve on this, but it
might end up being a separate TODO.
