Wow, that does greatly simplify printing. One nit: the variable named 
'im' isn't needed any more, you could just use 'pim'. Not sure if the 
asymmetry with 're' and 'pre' is worthwhile, though.

That's correct. It might make a difference when fixing issue 4482, 
though, at least for the %-formatting case. So if you're going to check 
this in, sooner is better than later for me.

Also, could this be backported to 2.7, so that 4482 can be fixed the 
same way in both versions?
