On behalf of the *MANY MANY* people who have read and valued the time
spent in creating that documentation, and in the face of such
frusteration, I'd like to say thank you.


With the rip buf patch that George posted a while ago, there was a
shift from using sprintf to snprintf. However, this is not something
that is supported by the windows systems. Have you considered making a
circle version of the snprintf, similar to the way you made a circle
specific strn_cpy?
