    (load '((lisp) string))
    (setq a 'ards)
    (string-append "foo" a)

    ;ARDS ~1G~S does not pass the ~0G~S test, for function ~2G~S ?

    I don't think this is very informative.
If you load FORMAT you'll get totally winning messages.  However, since some
systems can't tolerate the address space consumed by FORMAT, it isn't loaded by
default.  So as a poor alternate, it just gives you the format string.
