 The leading space is artificially depressing that figure.

 The expressions '\<' and '\>' can be used to match the beginning and end
 of a "word". In 7.0,
 grep '\<str(' *.py | wc -l
 gives 294, but that isn't quite all of them, as there are some uses of
 "map(str, ...)" and similar. Using
 grep '\<str\>' *.py | wc -l
 finds 332, although that also includes some false positives where "str" is
 used as a variable name.

 instead of a number is returned.

 Using str() to create string representations of numeric values is fine.
 Converting arbitrary Python values to strings (e.g. for debugging) should
 use repr(). Conversion of unicode strings to byte strings should use the
 .encode() method.
