At the risk of turning this into prolonged bikeshedding, IMO the PRI
constants would be the better solution (with a small margin). I have
myself used the casting solution in the past to get rid of compiler
warnings, but that has been because I didn't know about the PRI

That said, I'm ok with either solution.
