I didn’t mean implementing formatters from scratch (fwiw, libc++ does have that already for the modern std::format stuff too). Mingw-w64 already has got its own formatters that are used when `__USE_MINGW_ANSI_STDIO` is defined - I meant extending that with an entry point that takes a locale parameter. (Not sure if that’s straightforward or requires touching everything though.)

But on the other hand, now that libc++ does have its own formatters, I guess it could be useful to use that for these older formatting cases too, instead of relying on the libc?
