My only opposition to this is that the byte type may want to use it. I'd rather wait until byte is fully defined, implemented, and released in a python version before that option is taken away.
Has this been proposed? What would %b print?
It was proposed in this or another thread about the same in the last few days (gmane search doesn't like the % in '%b').
The suggestion is to add 'b' as a sprintf-like format string %[<base>][.<pad>]b
Where the optional <base> is the base to print in and <pad> is the optional minimum length of chars to print (as I recall). Default is base 2.
Me? I like it.
