How to do a sprintf in Python

So I searched and searched and couldn't find how to do a `sprintf` in
Python. There seemed to be no such routine name. In fact, there’s not!
But I was staring right at it. It's simply the `%` operator, overloaded
for strings. Examples:

#!/usr/bin/python -Wall
# ================================================================

# ================================================================
print "Here %s the number: %d" % ("is", 37)
s = "Here %s the number: %d" % ("is", 37)
print s
