Python 3.4.1 (v3.4.1:c0e311e010fc, May 18 2014, 10:38:22) [MSC v.1600 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license()" for more information.
>>> '{0:d}'.format('a')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#0>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: Unknown format code 'd' for object of type 'str'

Nothing appears to have changed despite "the issue will go away in 3.4" in msg164373.  What should have happened here?
