The error message could just say. something to the effect of ".pypyrc works differently in Python 2 and Python 3. If you want a percent sign in Python 3, you have to escape it with another percent sign".

Suppose someone is already using a configuration file that specifies a value as having two literal percent signs in a row, like a password that actually contains two percent signs. I see no way of fixing the present bug without breaking this situation, and I presume that this is why Antoine suggested that this is a wont fix.
