Gregory - I'm glad that you're willing to consider this again. It still is a constant issue for me, and .format with variable width fields in binary protocols is so the right tool for the job. If there is anything I can do to help get this added to 3.6 let me know. The forward/backward compatibility issue is secondary to me to the flexibility gained from having .format available for bytes.

Also padding with null bytes that don't get converted would be awesome.
