This stuff will all be much easier once we have variadic templates,
i.e. you will be able to have a type-safe sprintf in C++. You can now
get a version of gcc that supports them, and they should be in C++0x.
So unless you have some very urgent reason to change immediately, I
suggest that you wait for a bit.
(I imagine that this means that the operator%-style Boost.Format will
not progress towards the standard library, but I am not in any position
to comment on that.)
