I do think __FILE__ and __LINE__ can be useful, and it would not be the
end of the world to simply omit them on platforms that can't do the
variadic macros (there shouldn't be many these days, and I think they
are used to living with reduced functionality in some cases).
But if this were attached to trace_printf, we would always have a
message anyway, no?
