No, because they are shared between all of the many different procedures of 
format. Of course, one could make all of the various procedures used by 
format be local to format. That seems to be the best way to do things, so 
I'll redo my patch so it does that instead. I also noticed (a few minutes 
ago) that I missed the variables used by the floating point printer that are 
global and modified.
