indicates that:
"The precision is a decimal number indicating how many digits should be displayed after the decimal point for a floating point value"

Yet I find that I get this behavior:

Python 3.4.3 (default, Mar 26 2015, 22:03:40) 
[GCC 4.9.2] on linux
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> '{:08.3}'.format(12.34)
