Bug Description

Wibble's string.h uses vasprintf but does not #include <cstdio>.

It causes issues like the following when compiling debtags:

"In file included from /usr/include/wibble/test.h:3,
                 from /usr/include/wibble/exception.h:25,
                 from /usr/include/ept/apt/apt.h:27,
                 from Printer.h:35,
/usr/include/wibble/string.h: In function 'std::string wibble::str::fmt(std::string, ...)':
/usr/include/wibble/string.h:63: error: 'vasprintf' was not declared in this scope"

Debdiff coming shortly.

Thanks for your contribution. Please don't add patch systems to packages that don't have them already; general convention in Ubuntu is that we stick with existing packaging. I'd be happy to sponsor this if you just applied the patch directly to the source package.

OK, here's an updated version (and I ran update-maintainer this time!). :)
