Are you trying to argue

No, I'm trying to solve the problem. If it's just as easy to solve the problem even on oddball platforms, then we might as well solve it in a portable way. (After all, that's the main justification for the patch I just installed, where the "oddball platform" in this case is Mingw-w64. :-)

(pending the time when %td w/ ptrdiff_t is generally available)

If "generally available" means "even Microsoft supports it", then I wouldn't hold my breath. Although %td has been part of the C standard for 17 years, MS-Windows still does not support it.
