I wish I could remember right now, but I recall needing some %
formatting functionality that sprintf (or was it sscanf) had that
guile didn't seem to provide.  It made me think that it might be nice
to have a more direct interface to the unix function for those that
want it, but I can't recall what the particular missing bit was.

Any reason we wouldn't want to provide a module providing
sprintf/sscanf functionality eventually?
