Honestly, what Twisted is mostly after is a way to write code that
works both with Python 2 and Python 3. They need the types I mentioned
only (bytes, int, float) and not too many advanced features of
.format() -- but if it's not called .format() or if the syntax is not
a subset of the syntax of Python 2 format syntax, it's not very useful
for them. (They would have to rewrite every protocol implementation in
their tree to use something different, apparently, since .format() has
proven to be the most efficient way to construct larger byte strings
out of smaller pieces, in Python 2.)
