I think it might just shift the warning to another architecture :). 
Last I tried I couldn't find the magic format to make it /not/ warn 
on both i386 and amd64 at same time with gcc..

The cast will obviously work though, yes.

The real solution though is C99 %z, but not everything supports it.

But no strong opinion on the matter myself, other than a general 
aversion to casting away warnings. :)
