Why would any other compiler than MS use that internal inttypes.h ?

#ifdef _MSC_VER
#include "msvc_inttypes.h"

Anyway, what's beyond understanding is why a workaround that used to be 
there and was making everyone happy was removing. It didn't fix 
anything, but it did create a problem for many people.
