Does this mean that Py3k text streams will accept byte arrays
in their write() methods, and that byte arrays can be concatenated
with unicode strings and otherwise used in any context expecting
a text string, as long as all their elements are in the ASCII range?
If that's true, then some of my objection is mitigated.
