  Honnestly I would prefer to add a new sexpr_fmt_node() routine with
the snprintf call which would then call the old sexpr_node() and replace
the few places where you need that functionality with call to sexpr_fmt_node.
I'm just a bit afraid that people may not realize it's expanded that way
and pass uncheck strings.

  Otherwise it just look fine, I can do the change or you can do it, either

   thanks !
