There's a Python prototype of the string formatting PEP in my Mercurial 
repository here:


The main thing that needs to be done is to graft what's there in the 
prototype into the actual built-in string class. I don't know if that 
requires porting the prototype to C or not.

It also needs unit tests; I can help with that part if needed.
