Python Language : Save the operator \% ! sign now

If you think that the old string operator '\%' shouldn't disappear from the next releases of Python language, please let us known !

Start from python 3.0, the new best practice will be to use string.format instead, which is more powerful (it's a fact) but also more _verbose_


For example,

before :
print "Hello, \%s !" \% name

now :
print ("Hello, {0} !".format(name))

We can see that, for a simple print function, the new string.format is boring to type. The brackets are not easily found by our fingers on azerty keyboard (altgr + [5/+]), and the resulting expression is longer.

So even if the new string.format is awsome, I really think that the old \% operator have some interest, it's a good syntaxic sugar (so are the functions decorators)

The \% operator will start to be deprecated in the python 3.1.


Please, help us to save the \% operator !
