Julian talked about this code already, but just to point out: your
change is incorrect, because it removes the _() functionality, i.e.,
string localisation. You have to be careful about these things.

...Indeed, we use quite a lot of _() with printf format strings (see
all the references to 'c-format' in tools/po/po-update.sh). Why
aren't these _all_ warnings with your compiler?
