Progress report:

Corinna Vinschen, the Cygwin project co-leader, has implemented
wprintf, fwprintf, swprintf, vwprintf, vfwprintf, and vswprintf, and
they have been added to the Newlib trunk. Additional comments and
suggestions came from Craig Howland, Jeff Johnston, and Eric Blake.
Thanks to these folks for moving Newlib, and thus Cygwin C++, wide
character support forward!

That leaves only the wscanf functions still to go.
