My only concern with this is that it would cause other implementations to do the same thing. I assume it's not hard for them, but it is work. I know that IronPython implemented the _formatter_* methods so that they could use string.py as-is.

But that's a small concern, I think this is a good idea in general. I agree it should be its own C module _string.
