------

The problem here is that this PEP 393 should not have been
created.
The first time I read it, I quickly understood, it can
not work!

This is illustrated by all the examples I give on this list.
In all the cases, I can explain why.

I never saw somebody beeing able to argue these examples are
wrong and/or explaining why they are wrong, except arguing
the flexible string representation exists!
