It is common to use quotes around %s. If the formatted argument is a string this will produce a string in qoutes, that look as a string literal in Python and other programming languages or just as a quoted string in English. But if quotes surround %r this looks like error. If the argument is a string this will lead to doubling qoutes. If its repr is in the form <...>, the angular parenthesis serve a role of qoutes, and additional qoutes are not needed.

PR 4582 removes qoutes around %r and {!r} in format strings.
