This is not at all what I had in mind. It includes a complete
reimplementation of i/o formatting when we already have two complete
implementations (streams and the old printf stuff) in the standard library.
Also, as far as I can tell from a cursory look, type-specific formatting is
to be embedded in the format string. I don't believe that it should be.
Rather, I am only suggesting that width and alignment specifiers (which are
type-independent) appear in the format string.
