Yes, that one I knew - that's a generic solution to printing any
random unknown integral type - and it's ugly - useful as a fallback though.

If that was to be the general recommended solution, we'd have no need for
almost any of the gazillion PRI[xd]TYPE #defines that exist now (PRIxPSIZE,

off_t's are a common enough data type that we should support printing them
without casts (IMO.)
