auto_number_formatter_2.py lets you experiment with this with a syntax
more similar to what ''.format() looks like:

$ ./python 
Python 2.7a0 (trunk:69608, Feb 14 2009, 04:51:18) 
[GCC 4.1.2 20070626 (Red Hat 4.1.2-13)] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> from auto_number_formatter_2 import formatter as _
>>> _('{} {} {}').format(3, 'pi', 3.14)
'3 pi 3.14'
>>> 

It still doesn't handle escaping '{' and '}', but is otherwise complete.
If the consensus is that this is useful, I'll implement it in
''.format(), otherwise I'm done with this issue.
