I'm afraid that this is the wrong solution to this problem:
People using sNprintf do this sometimes for security reasons. Just ignoring
the length is very likely to cause some problems with applications that
would have been otherwise secure (I'm thinking of chatclients etc).
snprintf should either be implemented or the application simply should
not work, but making a secure app insecure is not the way to go.

I found out that "pro" means "instead of" (as in proconsul). Now I know
what proactive means.
