^L is used for a printer to insert a new blank page. But who really 
print a source code on a printer? Or does some editor have a special 
usage of this *control sequence*?

It looks like ^L is used in Lib/smtpd.py as a hack for some editors so 
jump to the different classes, but there are other tools to jump to 
the classes.
