Update February 3rd, 2012 1:41AM: I forgot to update the version number and history in the readme and license files. Made a new release (v1.0.1-s.1) with the fix. The amount of ones here is getting a bit unsettling.
Apparently, I'm unable to follow even my own design documents. Anyway, the BlazeGears.Format class is now properly declared as a singleton, as it meant to be.
