what's wrong with the default clause?

the idea is that if it stumbles upon a formatting code it doesn't
understand, it copies the rest of the format string to the output
string (it cannot just skip unknown codes, since there's no way
to know what's in the argument list...)

if you can think of a better approach, let me know asap.
