If this was a message popping up at runtime to my grandma, I would tend to agree. However, as you said yourself: We are addressing developers, not end users. Name one single developer who hasn't at least once written some message like `%d new message(s) in your inbox`.

But if you are proposing to split the message into two and add complexity to the compiler just for nicer formatting, this would be both out of scope of the issue and also something that needs to be decided by somebody who is more involved with long term maintenance than me. Therefore please CC whoever is responsible for making such decisions.
