[Python-3000] i18n prefix

This is my first post to python-3000. After Guido PEPs-deadline
announcement, I decided to discuss an old idea while it still has
some chance of being accepted. :)
No, I do not want i18n identifiers. What I'd like to propose is a
standard syntax for i18n strings. Something like:
print i"my string"
My points are:
* i18n is everywhere (or is it the other way around? :-)
* Python has a tradition of incorporating good practices
* _ = gettext.gettext; print _("my string") isn't very nice
So, do you think that something like i"my string" would be better
than _("my string")? Would it add unnecessary complexity to Python?
