OK, but I still lack some glue to understand the issue.  Specifically:

  . the OP said "strings that are erroneously treated as docstrings in
    dump mode" -- where's the code which makes that mistake, and how
    is read_literal_string related to that mistake?
  . why isn't there an alternative to fix read_literal_string not to
    generate zero instead of the format template? the other
    alternatives all look like partial kludges to me
