Interesting idea, Alex. However, I don't think so. Doing a cast is
always taking a chance of unexpected results. I typically fix printf
warnings by changing the format to use the right flag.

Just a thought, if casting to (intmax_t) is always the right thing, then
printf would only need one integer format flag... ;-)

Appreciate the feedback.
