Subject[PATCH 5/9] Remove unused %*pE[achnops] formats
Date
From: "J. Bruce Fields" <bfields@redhat.com>

The [achnops] are confusing, and in practice the only one anyone seems
to need is the bare %*pE.

I think some set of modifiers here might actually be useful, but the
ones we have are confusing and unused, so let's just toss these out and
then rethink what we might want to add back later.
