The code says std::to_string, though.  So it sounds like some coding
conventions are being applied here of which I wasn't aware, and
neither is Emacs.  Are these conventions described somewhere?

I added that, but once again, the convention to put the
fully-qualified symbol name in the log entry should be documented, if
it isn't already, because Emacs doesn't do that, at least not by
default.  Is this convention applied consistently across the project?

I wasn't sure what it means "to require MinGW 5.x", in practice, but I
pushed only to the branch for now.
