[cyclone/sprintf %*d]
[cyclone/sprintf %.*d]
[cyclone/sprintf %*.*d]

all print out this to the console :

     sprintf's error: slot skipped (width parameter not supported in a
     format pattern)

and naturally anything else with asterisks in their format specifiers.

Actually, [cyclone/sprintf] also silently fails with a plain %05d or %5d, 
for example, as it converts them back to float, instead of keeping them as 

But if I do foo%05dbar, it's fine (though it produces it as a selector 
instead of symbol $1... but that is its intention, I suppose...).

But if I do foo%5dbar, then it's wrong again, as it does foo%4dbar 
instead !

Can you find any bugs in [gf/sprintf] ?
