Description

We need to supply an open source version of printf. The simplest way to do this is to add another alias to the libcmd builtins.

Initial testing so far on this is good, although note that ksh93 printf has support for quite a few additional format specifiers beyond what legacy closed printf did. This shouldn't be viewed as a problem, but rather natural extension.
