[New-bugs-announce] [issue11396] add format handler to bytes object

New submission from nestor <nestornissen at gmail.com>:

Many programs written for Python 2.x use simple string interpolation to create byte strings with specific layout, this is gone in 3.x. Is it possible to support the format method but maybe only supporting field names like '{}' '{1}{2}' '{name}' and not conversion and formatting for the bytes type?


and the "get_current_url" function at this post:
