Good food for thought; while often possibly not as dangerous as with
C/C++ programs, format string badness exists in Perl and other languages
too: http://seclists.org/lists/fulldisclosure/2005/Dec/0091.html

Validator doesn't use *printf(), but the link checker does; I'll comb
through the code to see if there are any susceptible cases.
