R. David Murray <rdmurray at bitdance.com> added the comment:

So the error is going to be something about the source type not supporting '__format__'?

That change will also address the OP's concern about truncated reprs when a fixed string length is specified, so I agree that the title issue can be closed.  Terry's patch with the ("{}") removed should be committed, though.
