What I really don't understand is why there is such pressure to get an alternative interpolation added as methods to str & unicode rather than just adding an interpolation module to the library?
It could live in the new text module, where Greg Ward's word-wrapping code will be going. +1 on /F's suggestion of recycling the os.path.expandvars() code.
(Maybe a syntax-checker for %(...) strings would solve Mailman's problems, and alleviate the plaintive cries for an alternative interpolation syntax?)
