I would like to suggest adding an integer presentation type for base 36 to PEP 3101. I can't imagine that it would be a whole lot more difficult than the existing types.
Is it practical to add a base36 integer presentation type (say, 'z' or 'Z' similar to hexadecimal's 'x' or 'X') to the existing integer presentation types list in PEP 3101 (or do I need to raise a brand new PEP for this near-triviality)? It would be a very parallel thing to the hexadecimal one which is doing almost all the same things.
