If you are volunteering to test it on every platform that exists, I
welcome your input.  But the fact is I don't think we have the resources
required to test on every single platform that apache runs on before a
release, no matter how early in the beta cycle this went in.  We can
probably cover the platforms that somthing like 90% of the users use, but
we need to be prepared for the case that it won't compile on some
platform.  In that case, the ability to make it simply use a wrapper
around sprintf means that Apache still works on that platform as well as
it would have without any snprintf patches.
