Which I don't think we've started using yet in Xorg, since we've assumed more
about the C99 compatibility of our compilers than of the platform C libraries.

As best as I know, casting is the most portable way to make sure the argument
sizes match the format string for now, until we're ready to demand C99 
compliance of the printf() implementation in the platform libraries.
