Dear Camm,

thanks a lot for the support. I admit that when I first tried to get
your attention a few years back, I might not have done it right, but
anyway, here we are now.

Excellent, this is exactly what I need.

Thanks. I'll try again without workarounds.

Yes. Therefore, while we're at it can you add support for ~i and ~_ in format?

Agreed, but in this case, it is one of GCL's own internal functions
that generates such a call.

I'll get back to you again after GCL is done recompiling itself and
testing ASDF.
