#bindWith: is the same as using #format but not using "{x}" 
syntax but "%x" syntax instead. 

 In Pharo you we usualy write:

    'foo {1} bar' format: {Date today}  

 which returns  'foo 11 July 2012 bar'

I think it was VisualAge that used #bindWith: and % as marker, so
if you want to port code from that Smalltalk to Pharo 
it may be helpful to add support for that.

So it does the same - only a little bit different:

  'foo %1 bar' bindWith: Date today aString  

Thats why it is now in http://ss3.gemstone.com/ss/PharoGoodies.html
Another option is to rewrite code to use #format:
