But let's make str() of a slice more suggestive of actual slicing, and
as a bonus, make slices easier to create too.
str(slice(None, None, None)) => "slice[:]"
following all the later discussion, I'd like to come back to this initial part of this thread: An even briefer for for just "str" would be to omit the 'slice' part
str(slice(None, None, None)) => "[:]"
etc. Since it has colons in there, it's clear it is a slice. And it is very brief notation.
It is also confusing -- it is surrounded by  but it is not a list (not even close).
