Looks good. But is there really no alternative to the %pI / %pA formats?
There are compilers other than gcc out there.... Okay, we win gcc's
half-baked type checking (which here is almost defeated because it
accepts any pointer anyway). But such a format is not "clean" and
consistent with the other format types (%.p or %+p or %#p? Nope, that's
not clean either.... %A and %I will probably make gcc choke. Too bad.)

Hmmm... I cabn't think of a better solution either.
