My two cents worth.
I recently posted an implementation of oformatstream.
It has similar properties to what you're discussing and
although it was written under MS VC I tried hard to keep
it as std C++. There is perhaps one area where I copied
an implementation technique from the but it shouldn't cause
a problem.

I clearly favour keeping the printf format specifications.
They aren't always transparent and easy to use but changing to yet
another set of abbreviations isn't really justifiable.

Yours in bits
