Add String#format method(not an alias of String#%)
I think it'd be great if String included a method similar to
% that accepts variable number of arguments (like
sprintf). This is trivial to implement as you're certainly aware.
Here's one implementation suggestion:
This would make the new method behave both like
String#%. I think this minor improvement would definitely be in the spirit of making more programmers happy :-)
