Interested in the recent threads about % and str.format(), I wrote a
little Python 3 script that converts % format strings to format
strings compatible with str.format(). I invite you to try it out. The
code is at https://code.launchpad.net/~gutworth/+junk/mod2format (That
means you can do "bzr branch lp:~gutworth/+junk/mod2format".) It
should basically work except for some obscure cases like "%#.0f".
