I am curious whether these optimizations for str % tuple get applied to
equivalent str.format(*tuple) calls or if you plan to make them do so.
It seems to me that there could be one internal function that does the
concatenation, with lengthening and resizing, of literal and formatted
substrings, for both interfaces.
