I meant just the outer (format "%s%s%s%s" ...) vs (concat ...).  Is that
also needed to make strings localizable?  If yes, I think adding a

Oh, you mean (format "%s%s%s%s" ...) vs an eventual (concat "%s%s%s%s" ...) ?

Sorry, I was trying to elide the the less relevant parts, but I see it's
making things less understandable.  Let me just spell it out in full:

Thank you. I see what you mean and that makes perfect sense. Give me a few days.

It there a length limit in emacs code ?

Um, I thought there was a convention of generally trying to keep things
within 80 columns, but now I can't find anything saying that.  I may
have just been thinking of other non-Emacs projects.

But I seem to remember something similar too. Wasn't it in the documentation strings ? Or the commit messages ?
