New submission from Stefan Krah <stefan-usenet at bytereef.org>:

It used to be possible to specify Unicode fill characters in numeric
formatting:

Python 3.3.0a0 (default:1dd6908df8f5, Jul 16 2011, 11:16:00) 
[GCC 4.4.3] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> format(1234, "\u2007<7")
'1234\u2007\u2007\u2007'
[64682 refs]
>>> 


Now it doesn't work:

Python 3.3.0a0 (default:65ac469d30e6, Jan  3 2012, 23:23:07) 
[GCC 4.4.3] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> format(1234, "\u2007<7")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: fill character too large
