Really? You know, it's funny, but when I read problems that people
have with python, I don't remember seeing that. Loads of people
complain about the white space issue. Some people complain  about the
speed. Lots of complaints about certain quirky behavior, but I have
not come across any complaints about the string formatting.

In fact, from what I have seen, many of the "problems" being "fixed"
seem to be non-problems.

I dunno, maybe it's just me.
