[sapug] Simple Sequence Question

Hey All,

Got a rather simple question about formatting a string. Say I have a string:

s = '1234567812345678'

and I want to format it like:

t = '1234:5678:1234:5678'

Is there a simple slicing operation? Or do I need to do something like:

t = ''
for i in xrange(len(s)):
  if not i == 0 and i % 4 == 0:
    t += ':'
  t += s[i]
