If I were proposing something like this, I'd be using the new
formatting syntax that's supposed to become the standard in Python


That would mean something like::

  '{name} was born in {country}'

I'm not *in*-sane. Indeed, I am so far *out* of sane that you appear a
tiny blip on the distant coast of sanity.
