I bet you have something like lists:flatten(io_lib:format(Format,
Parameters)) somewhere in that library :-)

I think it would be useful if there were some "extended distribution"
to OTP that would contain libraries like the one you've created. The
big problem would be that most major Erlang projects already have some
libraries on their own and of course they wouldn't pick this new
"extended distribution" up.
