Mostly, stuff that exists as "builtin" syntax, ie printf-style formats
that can be implemented "under the hood" using sprintf should probably
be C. "everything" can be expressed in term of my signature, I just
wouldn't try it if my life depened on it.

I can make chr python either way. It's a question of how "deep" we want
python to go.
