On the subject of the string format specifiers, I can think of two relatively
simple solutions:

- go through the user-specified string and prefix all '%' characters that are
not followed by 's' with additional '%', escaping them (also possibly any that
occur after the first '%s' combination

- use an alternative string-substitution method (directly coded instead of printf)

Neither of these would be terribly difficult to implement, but I'd hate to set a
bad precedent for future nALFS options/etc. that need substitution available.
