I'm attaching v2 of my proposed patch.  This one is quite a bit better, IMHO.

- Introduce __ascii__ as a special method, like __str__ but required to exist only if an ASCII-only format exists.

- Extract PyString_Format from Python 2.7 and update it for PyBytes.

- %c only accepts integers, not single character strs, maybe should
  accept length one byte objects.

- add %a, should be useful for debugging

- %s calls __bytes__ or __ascii__, otherwise gives a TypeError, should
  eventually support buffer API

- number formats work as they do in Python 2.
