I have a GPL'd version of vsnprintf() -- taken from GNU screen -- in
Mailman for systems that don't have native support. That's not
appropriate for Python, but I seem to remember a few other LGPL or
MIT-ish licensed versions floating around when I did a search a couple
of years ago. Maybe it's time to add our own which would only be
linked in if the platform didn't have native support?
