Just to repeat it on the list: What the patch does is perfectly valid
Python code and will work just fine as long as it gets passed exactly
the argument types it's expecting. However if the argument changes to be
a tuple, Python will choke with the "format % arg" syntax, whereas it
will continue to work with "format % (arg, )". I've hit this problem
quite a lot in my version support branch (because I changed object_id
from a string to a 2-tuple of strings), so I prefer making Sugar more
robust by default (i.e. as a matter of style). In addition it looks more
consistent to my eye to always use "format % (tuple contents,...)"
rather than using "format % arg" in some of the cases.
