Here's request from Colin:

"What are the chances of getting printf() and sprintf() to have
an optional syntax:

    string  sprintf( string format, array args );

Where $args would be an array of all the arguments to be passed,
instead of listing them one by one.  This would be useful if one
needed to write some kind of a wrapper function for printf() that
processed the format string and/or each of the arguments before
passing them to printf()."

off to your major data banks and reprogram you with a very large axe.
