Nope. One of the first thing I've had to do in several projects in C++
is to add printf-like formatting to logging and io frameworks as the
source was otherwise imposible to understand. And I've done it in Java
and Lua too, where it is much easier ( as you can catch
format-parameter discordances more easily ).
