snprintf is in C99, but not in C89. The Windows libc /does// /have
_snprintf, but it behaves somewhat strangely in that it won't
null-terminate your buffer the string is too long; it'll return a
negative value instead, and quietly let you run off the end of the
buffer if you don't check for that.

Anyway, what's APR for, if not for portability?
