One of the fist things I remember being taught as a C progrmmer
was to never use scanf.  Programs that use scanf tend to fail
in rather spectacular ways when presented with simple typos and
other forms of unexpected input.  

Given the bad behavior and general fragility of scanf(), I
doubt there's much demand for something equally broken for
Python.

Not sure if mine was helpful...
