[New-bugs-announce] [issue9889] PyUnicode_FormatV and Py_UNICODE*?

New submission from Michael Kleehammer <michael at kleehammer.com>:

Using Py_UNICODE* in Python 3 C extensions is significantly more cumbersome than using char* was in Python 2.x.  One addition that could help would be a Py_UNICODE* format type for PyUnicode_FormatV.

Many printf libraries us %S for wchar_t which would have been nicely analogous, but that is already taken for str(obj).
