That's hardly relevant, as it sounds like Bart's work marks a considerable
improvement to the existing printf code. Surely we should evaluate it on
that basis, and not because it's not something entirely different.

Lennart, are you on the libraries@ list? If Bart's work passes review and
seems backwards compatible, do you have any objection to moving from your
printf implementation to his?
