The attached file is a mostly working version that inherits from
string.Formatter. It has the following shortcomings, which would all be
addressed if we go forward:

- Doesn't handle escaping '{' or '}'
- Doesn't handle conversion specifiers, like '!s'

These are all a function of me being too lazy to write a complete
parser. If anyone really wants them, I could add them. But this is just
a proof of concept.

Admittedly this isn't a drop-in replacement for ''.format(), but it
should give a taste of what using it would be like.
