Comment(by sascha_silbe):

 Replying to [comment:1 erikos]:
 > Python 2.6 contains a new way for formatting, described
 [http://docs.python.org/library/stdtypes.html here] and
 formatting here].

 That's not necessary, older versions of Python can do formatting using
 dictionaries quite fine:

 >>> "%(seconds)d seconds elapsed" % {'seconds': 5}
 '5 seconds elapsed'
 >>> "seconds elapsed" % {'seconds': 5}
 'seconds elapsed'
 >>> "%(second)d seconds elapsed" % {'seconds': 5}
 Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
 KeyError: 'second'

 > However this might have issues when using with gettext as described in
 [http://bugs.python.org/issue8359#msg103023 this] python bug.

 As mentioned in the bug report you cited, the above method works fine with

 In case the formatting fails, we should fall back to the next-most
 preferred language, down to C = original string if necessary.
