Draft PEP: string interpolation with backquotes

if the PEP will be realised, I propose to make it visually
compatible with Python formatting operation:

" %(expression)s "

- everything else will add unnecessary complications.
Maybe this form will be also (or exclusively) be in use:

" %{expression}s "

However, hooks for formatting operation will also be needed,
so providing our own eval will be possible.
