Did you possibly need both integer and string forms at one point? I can
easily see using the printf if you needed a string. I couldn't see a
reason for it either :-), but figured it was there for some (historical)
reason. Best I came up with, was string variables or somesuch.


p.s. I'm assuming the policy is to not patch 2.0 at the same time, since
we'll probably want to do a sweep of all changes since the last tag (and
haphazardly patching one or two things over would make that job tougher)
