It doesn't, which is one of the reasons for not allowing it in
translatable strings (the other being lack of standardization of the
strings that would be subject to translation).  Adding 'z' will only
fix this for cases where what we want to print is really a size_t.
That's a usefully large set, but not all the cases by any means.
