Comment:

 The issue is more complex than first expected. We use PyOS_sprintf for our
 formatting needs, but the function is not consistent across platforms (the
 problem is being fixed in python: http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-
 bugs-list/2007-December/043559.html).

 Maybe the solution is to have our own formatting functions, which does not
 sound like fun...
