Would that not break the compiler's ability to verify the format codes
in the string?  Not to mention make it harder for people to compare
format to arguments, too?

However, the real problem here is that you shouldn't be calling ngettext
manually in an ereport context in the first place.  There is
infrastructure in place for that, and this isn't using it.
