> Serhiy: I'm not sure what you're saying. At the point that str.format() is producing its error message, it doesn't know as much as %-formatting does about the original arguments, so it can't produce a similar message.

I'm surprised that the code of the classic and the modern formatting is
so different. Looking deeper, I saw that the issue will go away in 3.4.
I agree with you in msg151728.
