So, I'm in a little bit of doubt about patches 01 and 02. Does
this really win us anything? On the one hand, %"PRIx32" is more
difficult to read than %x. On the other, does it win us anything
in terms of portability? At first glance, the answers seems to me
to be "no". Your thoughts?

Thanks,

Michael
