I have a format string like:

  print "{:10} {:25} = {:6}   ({})".format(mod, name, value, description)

description can be None. In this case I want to print an empty string (which
can be achieved by replacing it with 'description or ""') and I want to omit
the brackets. Is there a way to tell the format string to omit a part if an
input variable is None?

You could strip the trailing brackets (and spaces too?) after

print "{:10} {:25} = {:6} ({})".format(mod, name, value, description or "").rstrip("() ")

assuming, of course, that the value never ends with brackets.

Another question: value can be bool. When I format value with just {} if
prints True or False, when I use {:6} it prints 1 or 0. Is there a way to
get pack to True / False?
