    I wanted to make the _n() functions like warning_n() more

There must be a tree-diagnostics.c where you can add those functions and
then call the general diagnostic functions. Same for RTL.

I don't see how to do that.

Here's a sketch of what I tried to do:

  struct IntegerConverter
    union {
      tree t;
      unsigned HOST_WIDE_INT hwi;
      // buffer for offset_int, wide_int, etc.
    } value;

    IntegerConverter (tree t)
      value.t = t;

    IntegerConverter (unsigned HOST_WIDE_INT x)
      value.x = x;


  void error_n (int, const IntegerConverter &, const char*, ...);

With that, the call

  error_n (loc, t, "%E thing", "%E things", t);

works when t is a tree, and the call to the same function

  error_n (loc, i, "%wu thing", "%wu things", i);

also works when i is a HOST_WIDE_INT.  I chose this approach
to avoid introducing additional overloads of the error_n()

Note that pretty-printer.c works in the same way.

It works that way for arguments passed through the ellipsis.
I was trying to use tree (indirectly) in the signature of
the _n() functions and for that I need "tree.h" etc. in
diagnostic-core.h and be able to call functions from
the header in diagnostic-core.c.  I suppose I could make
the calls indirectly somehow but I can't avoid including
GCC headers in diagnostic-core.h.
