Indeed, not only it would bring little benefit, but may also confuse users porting from 2.x (since the from/tostring methods would then have a totally different meaning).

resolution:  -> duplicate
stage: patch review -> committed/rejected
status: open -> closed
superseder:  -> array constructor and array.fromstring should accept bytearray.
