I was just having a peek at this, and it seemed like one way to do
it was to add a third integer argument to the format attribute which
was a flag, and one value would be "null fmt is valid".  This could
be bad though if third party software used __format__ - can a format
attribute have a variable number of arguments?  Another idea is to have
a __nullformat__ attribute which is the same as a __format__ attribute
but set a "null fmt is valid" flag as well...
