New submission from Matt Joiner <anacrolix at gmail.com>:

The Format Specification Mini-Language is missing type 'i', generally the same as 'd', and ubiquitous in the libraries from which the specification is derived. See the 'd,i' conversion specifier in C: http://linux.die.net/man/3/printf, and the Old String Formatting Operations: http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/stdtypes.html#old-string-formatting-operations.

>>> '{:d}'.format(3)
>>> '{:i}'.format(3)
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: Unknown format code 'i' for object of type 'int'
