Makes sense as a preparatory step to pass the return status
throughout the call chain.  The functions that actually will detect
issues should probably gain

	/*
	 * a comment before the function
	 * that documents what it does and what values it returns
	 * to signal the failure.
	 */

before them; those that only pass the errorcode through to the
caller do not necessarily have to, though.

This is questionable.  Why does it write final_buf out regardless of
the return value, even though it refrains from writing terminating LF
upon non-zero return from the same function that prepared final_buf?

"Because final_buf is left unmodified when formatter returns an
error, and calling fwrite on an empty buffer ends up being a no-op"
is a wrong answer---it relies on having too intimate knowledge on
how the callee happens to work currently.
