Maybe I'm confused. I thought we had agreed that most
types would delegate to str if they didn't understand
the format, so most of the time there wouldn't be any
need to use "!s". Is that still true?
If not, I think it will be very inconvenient, as I
very frequently format things of all sorts of types
using "%s", and rely on it doing something reasonable.
