Éric Araujo <merwok at netwok.org> added the comment:
A note in the docs (without note/warning directives, just a note) and maybe the docstring would be good. It should better explain that str has two uses: converting anything to a str (using __str__ or __repr__), decode buffer to str (with encoding and errors arguments). str(b'') is a case of the first use, not the second (and likewise %s formatting).
