PEP 3127 "Integer Literal Support and Syntax" says that % string
formatting should support %b.  This needs to be added to both 2.6 and
3.0.  It needs to support the forms %b and %#b.

On the python-3000 list we decided not to add new features to %
formatting, since it will be deprecated in favor of str.format.

I should have noted that the PEP was modified to remove %b and %#b
