I agree with Skip, too. The % printf operator is a very useful and
powerful feature. I'm doing newbie support at my university and in
#python. Newbies are often astonished how easy and powerful printf() is
in Python. I like the % format operator, too. It's easy and fast to type
for small jobs.
I beg you to keep the feature. I agree that the new PEP 3101 style
format is useful and required for more complex string formating. But
please keep a simple one for simple jobs.
