Yes, thanks for the note.

This is not foreseen by CLtL2 or ANSI CL. You have to write your own
function for this. Since you cannot use ~/f/ to call this function, you
have to transform your format strings into pieces of regular Lisp code.
The `formatter' macro will help you much in doing this.

In 1997, it would be logical to write a manual in HTML. I'm not going to
do it, though (lack of time). Any volunteers?
