The problem with this change is that it wouldn't be backward compatible. I'm not sure how many people it would affect, but probably more than zero.

>>> str.format('{ 0 }', **{' 0 ': 42})
'42'

>>> str.format('{ }', **{' ': 43})
'43'

Does that mean it can't be changed? Not necessarily, of course.

I agree it's unfortunate that we didn't specify this back with PEP 3101.
