I have this mostly implemented in ''.format(), despite my earlier
statement that I was done playing with it after the sample that's
attached to http://bugs.python.org/issue5237. Now that I have this
working in the core, I find Terry's argument above quite convincing. Not
having to do the shift-unshift-shift dance to type in the format
placeholder really does make it easier to use for the simple cases. I'm
seeing this as a definite improvement.
