In particular, Python's interactive mode uses repr to print the result of any 
expression that whose value was not None:

   [/Users/cameron]fleet*> python
   Python 2.7.8 (default, Oct  3 2014, 02:34:26)
   [GCC 4.2.1 Compatible Apple LLVM 5.1 (clang-503.0.40)] on darwin
   Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
   >>> x=1
   >>> y='1'
   >>> x
   1
   >>> y
   '1'
   >>>

so you get this for free in that mode.
