I'm working on backporting the changes I made for PEP 3101 (Advanced String Formatting) to the trunk, in order to meet the pre-PyCon release date for 2.6a1.
I have a few questions about how I should handle str/unicode. 3.0 was pretty easy, because everything was unicode.
Since this is a new feature, why bother with strings at all (even in 2.6) ?
Use Unicode throughout and be done with it.
