The only place I can think of for implicit str casts is Python2's print statement. The %s way warns at least IIRC.

Casts for compound types makes sense since the internal type to parse out is very ambiguous. I would have thought bool would follow int since they're both POD-ish. It bit me in a config parser (it was our pre-existing format, so the stdlib module wasn't going to work) where I passed a function to use to cast the value out from the parse. You could use int, but anything else needed a wrapper function.
