There are two problems here: what to call this feature, and where to put it.

The current f-string documentation is in Doc/reference/lexical_analysis.rst, which I'm not sure is the best place to add discussion about how this feature works. This feature is run-time behavior, and goes beyond what the lexer documentation should show.

Perhaps it can be added under Tutorial?
