I see the same problem with it that the original patch from a few months ago
had as well: the printf/scanf type format codes will break on systems
with a 32-bit off_t. The fix for this last time went something like this:

#ifdef LONG_LONG_OFF_T // need some kind of configure test for this
#define OFF_T_FMT "lld"
#define OFF_T_FMT "d"

off_t sz=foo();
printf("Size is %" OFF_T_FMT, sz);

I can see the value of a curl API that doesn't depend on floating point at
all in some small systems that lack hardware floating point support.
