we won't need the latter in the source code.

Thanks, this sounds like a good suggestion. We couldn't do this earlier, because changing ‘format’ in this way would have too many compatibility issues, but now that we have split ‘format-message’ out, the basic idea should work and should lessen the hassle of converting messages. It also should mean that we don't need %< or %> or even %q. I'll look into it.

Although I'm with Stefan about the yuck factor with ‘format-message’, this does seem to be the sort of thing that we could all sort of live with, i.e., one of the better of an unpleasant set of options....
