This point reminded me that there's still
https://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0536/ to consider as well (that's
the PEP about migrating f-strings to a fully nested expression grammar
rather than hijacking the existing string tokenisation code).
I *think* that's an orthogonal concern (since it relates to the
initial parsing and AST compilation phase, rather then the code
generation and execution phase), but it's worth keeping in mind.
