The inside of my brain is a finite place. Each thing I put in there leaves 
less room for something else. So I have to think very carefully before 
deciding what to keep in there.

Up to this point I have learned to do all this kind of formatting using 
format strings; is it worth making room in my brain to remember about zfill 
as well?

Somehow, I think not.
