No not a stupid question at all, in fact in my local installation I have
G_asprintf() compiled into 5.3 (I used it for some tests with the proj
library a while ago).

Really I suppose the idea was just we didn't want to be making too many
'improvements' to 5.3. It would be nice to put it in---actually maybe that
wouldn't be too much work and it woud be good to have there for people who
wanted to make unofficial add-ons and improvements to 5.3/5.4 after it is

At the moment all I was doing was tidying some things up still in
preparation for a 5.3.0 release, and I didn't have time to think about it
