Haven't read the ticket, so I kind of don't really see how it could be required, it just increases precision?!
Either way, both float itself and %f have very limited precision.
I'd suggest going with double and explicitly specifying a higher precision in the format string.
Possibly even going with %e if the spec allows for it and there are no compatibility issues.
