As expected, printf works for me on OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) as well.

The only thing we need to watch out for is when the parameters to printf have '%' embedded in them. Probably not a problem for the DDL, since '%' has special meaning in URLs, but using 'printf %s' should avoid problems down the road.
