Why not bytes.viewbytes (or whatever name) so that one could also subscript it? And if it were a property, one could perhaps conveniently get the n'th byte:

AFAICT, 'viewbytes' doesn't add much over bytes itself if we add a 'getbyte' method.
Also, would it not be more clear to call the int -> bytes method something like bytes.fromint or bytes.fromord and introduce the same thing on str? And perhaps allow multiple arguments to create a str/bytes of length > 1. I guess this may violate TOOWTDI, but anyway, just a thought.
Yes, it would. Changing to 'bytes.fromint'.
