Hmmmm, I don't see any, but then again I don't know Ada.  Is there no
equivalent to format strings in Ada?  No library support for it?

Your question actually highlights the point I was trying to make - in CWE,
we don't yet have a way of specifying language families, such as "any
language that directly supports format strings," or "any language with
dynamic evaluation."
