A couple of trivial follow-up ideas. Just putting them out here - for
anyone interested to take a stab.

This and the similar workaround for Cygwin could be dropped.
The fact that we had them in only one place (of 10+) indicates that
they are no longer needed.

Jose has bumped the MSVC requirement to 2015, which has proper
implementation of some *printf functions.
One could skim through the MSDN pages and drop the workarounds we no
longer need.
