I implemented this in r57641. I think it simplifies things. At least,
it's easier to explain.
Due to an optimization dealing with escaped braces, it's possible for
(literal, None, None, None) to be returned more than once. I don't
think that's a problem, as long as it's documented. If you look at
string.py's Formatter.vformat, I don't think it complicates the
implementation at all.
Thanks for the suggestion.
