I think the patch is worthwhile... I'm all for it; I'm just worried
if external modules "use" our snprintf() assuming that it's ANSI-like
and that all extensions to it don't break that ANSI-ish-nish :)
It's pretty bogus that gcc does what it does, but...

At the very least, maybe a bump in the MMN ?
