ouch.  what part of this "proposal" has been accepted?
hopefully the latter part (the "error number" part).

patch #100895, I hope.  note that snprintf and this implementation
are not equivalent (the safe version of PyErr_Format allocates a buffer
large enough to hold the message).


btw, don't forget patch #100941 (a bug fix to the new windows
popen code).  I'm working on a slightly modified version of David's
patch -- should be ready for check in on monday...
