Joseph,

thanks for explaining.  That is very interesting.  Would be worth working on it.

At the moment, I guess a first step would be to get NSString format string
parsing with ASCII Objective-C constant strings (ie, the same as printf). :-)

If the constant string is not ASCII, we could simply skip the check for now - and
come back to it in 4.7.0.  And I agree with you that we then want the general solution,
not just a quick hack. ;-)

Thanks
