Don't feel bad, you always have things like r'%s\%s' % (u'blah',
u'blah') and so on. But of course, it's only the other guys who are
evil / ugly / stupid. As the human torch says, "Flame On". :)

[Full disclosure: I like ruby _and_ I like python (gasp!), and see no
need to artificially criticize one or the other; I try rather to
utilize the strengths of both.]
