What is currently in git escapes the first 5 cases. But doing the other 
few shouldn't be a big issue. I implemented an almost printf free version, 
but I have some problems getting good benchmarks between versions, need to 
find out where some massive overhead comes from.

(Some person schedules bulk processing every night... while I'm coding... 
no clue why he can't schedule them when people are not coding... *g*)
