String formatting with two dictionaries?

Thanks for all the answers. Seems as if I hadn't been specific
enough about what I was looking for. It would be nice if there was
some builtin dictionary magic that would allow

"%(foo) %(bar)" % magic(dict1, dict2, ...)

where in case of duplicate keys the leftmost dictionary would be
preferred.

Perhaps the builtin dictionary() class could be extended so that
it accepts more than one dictionary argument?
