That’s part of it, but I also want to be able to have string arguments
print as values with the “”s, and also be able to do stuff like:
@my-format{some stuff
           <~a,~a>@|(foo-x blah) (foo-y blah)|
           more stuff}
Where the place-fillers can be on the same line as the place-holders,
even with a multi-line format string.
