u'\xff' == bytearray('\xff') # It should raise an error because of '-bb'
__main__:1: BytesWarning: Comparison between bytearray and string False
u'\xff' == '\xff'
__main__:1: UnicodeWarning: Unicode equal comparison failed to convert both arguments to Unicode - interpreting them as being unequal False
I see that the BytesWarning (and -b option) is a 3.x feature. I don't see the reason to keep it in 2.x, though....
On the other side, UnicodeWarning is unused in 3.x, why we keep it around? We may phase it out in 3.2?
