PEP 292 is slated for inclusion in Python 2.4, according to PEP 320. At Pycon I checked in my code for this into the sandbox, which I've since updated, adding unit tests. I believe it's ready for inclusion in dist CVS, but I want to get some feedback first.
My new stuff provides two classes, dstring() as described in PEP 292 and astring() as hinted at in the PEP.
I find these names to be arbitrary and not mnemonic or suggestive. How about "template" or "format" for "dstring"? I don't know what "astring" is.
