'%r' docs

To my pleasing surprice I discovered (from some python code, not
mine) that '%s'%(repr(obj)) has shorter form '%r'%(obj).

Though I scanned Python 2.1 docs in order to find some backing for this
discovery, I found non.
So, is this undocumented feature (and therefore may disappear in
future??)? Or could some one point out where are the fancy output formats
documented beside in the Tutorial.
