Tested.  Works for me.  Might include an example in the usage for left/right padding or something since the average user may not be wading through man 3 sprintf (that part of the man page is a bit obtuse).

SPRINTF(:%10s:|hello) results in   :     hello:
SPRINTF(:%-10s:|hello) results in :hello     :

or something like that.  I messed up at first since I am used to coding printf(":%10s:", var) with a comma and a space, I started seeing leading spaces when I did SPRINTF(%s, hello).  Fun.  :-)  Like the patch and will be very useful for me.  Thanks.

There is one other form that you may find useful, and that is:
SPRINTF(%-10.10s|somethingreallylong) which results in "somethingr"

This is useful for fixed width fields.  The same specification
works for shorter fields, too:
SPRINTF(%-10.10s|foo) which results in "foo       ".
