My only question is why bother doing a format check on something
that's going to be compiled out anyway? I suppose the only harm is a
tiny extra bit of compile time due to the check and I'm sure that's
measured in micro-seconds on full development systems, but if we do it
everywhere those tiny bits of time would eventually add up.

Admittedly it's a comment that probably isn't worth redoing the commit
over. I guess I'm bringing up the point more discuss the question:
"Should we add the printf format verification on the clauses that get
compiled out?"

So, it looks good to me as is, or if you feel like making the change
I'm suggesting, that's fine too. And it builds and runs on my
platforms.
