[not picking on Raymond here at all, his message was just convenient]

There are a number of comments in this thread that lead me to think not 
everyone is aware that .format is fully supported in 2.6. I just want to 
make sure everyone knows that's the case.

If you want to support 2.6+ and 3.0+, you can certainly use .format.
