Although I think the OP means in the Lua core, so it's more like

#define x_should_lie_between_0_and_25 "x should lie between 0 and 255"

Tricky to do when there's format specifiers in general.

We probably need a way to specify the order in format specifiers (like in GLIBC) first ...

From `man 3 printf`:

Many  countries  use the day-month-year order.  Hence, an internationalized version must be able to print the arguments in an
       order specified by the format:

           #include <stdio.h>
           fprintf(stdout, format,
                   weekday, month, day, hour, min);

       where format depends on locale, and may permute the arguments.  With the value:

           "%1$s, %3$d. %2$s, %4$d:%5$.2d\n"

       one might obtain "Sonntag, 3. Juli, 10:02".
