    That's true for *any* sprintf(), though. sprintf() converts all its
    arguments to 64 bits.

    However, this could be optimized. I think right now sprintf() uses a
    generic divide-by-base, but a divide by 8 and 16 can of course be
    handled with a shift, and divide by 10 can be replaced with a
    multiplication by 0x1999999999999999ULL on most architectures.
