I agree. I didn't realize this existed and created something
similar for something I am working on.

True. I also submitted a piece of code awhile back that did
r->args parsing that would be useful. Chuck also came up
with something similar. Either or would be nice to have
available for module development.

Another function that would be handy is a psprcat() if you will
that would allow format args to pstrcat(). Perhaps Ben's rprintf
code could be adapted to do this.
