Well the printf statement is quite a special case , as it needs to 
handle all the various format strings ... So reimplementing all that
code for pnetC is extra work.

Well there is a slight issue there about handling exceptions doing that.
And from a quick look, I think that Rhys has implemented the FILE I/O
already in libc/unistd/{read|open|write}.c .

But I would be very much happier if you could contribute to the class 
library ... Especially the unit tests section . Currently concentrating
on the System namespace ... That would be a nice place to get started on
and accelerate development.
