It looks more like some parts were left out in the merge
by accident: The 2.7 code only raises the warning for bytearrays,
not for bytes and buffers, whereas 3.2 issues the warning for
all bytes and bytearray (but not buffers; which makes sense,
since Python 3 no longer has a text buffer interface).
