Well there's your problem right there. Don't change your string
formatting choice on that basis. F-strings aren't "more Pythonic" than
either .format() or percent-formatting; all three of them are
supported for good reasons.

For i18n, I think .format() is probably your best bet. Trying to mess
with f-strings to give them methods is a path of great hairiness, as
they are not actually objects (they're expressions).
