A couple of comments on the format change:

Love the gain of \NNN, \xHH et al. escape sequences. Will this include 
locale-dependent multi-byte characters with \uHHHH and \uHHHHHHHH as well?

Leery of making "%c" == "%.1s". This behavior doesn't seem terribly useful.

Also, once the transition period is over, the only way to specify a 
non-literal character will be via \NNN, \x or \u, yes? All of which require 
an octal or hex argument. What would I do if I have an eval()---whose 
result is decimal---and I want to convert the result to a character?
