Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

In 3.2, a change *was* committed (by who?) but not recorded here:
.from/.tostring were renamed .from/.tobytes and kept as deprecated aliases. Is there anything more to this issue other than removing the deprecated aliases in 3.3 (which could be done now if that was the intention or 3.4 in not)?

Is there still any idea/intention of renaming .from/.tounicode to
.from/.tostring? That would have to be done at least one version with the 'string' names absent, and would have little gain as 'unicode' is clear.
