you don't analyse data files for a living, do you :-)
As a physicist, I have to open many kinds of data files with the weirdest
formats. Of course, some of them could not reasonably be supported by the python
builtins, but it doesn't have to be made unnecessary difficult either. "Be
liberal in what you accept".
However, I usually don't have to guess the base of my data, so this really
applies mostly to float(s), int(s), and int(s, base) with base != 0.
