Greg Bengeult added the comment:

I have attached a patch for 2.7 that adds -b and -bb to the command line documentation in Modules/main.c and Doc/library/cmdline.rst, following the suggested text provided by Martin.

Interestingly, unicode(), bytearray(), and str() don't seem to be transitive in 2.7.

>>> u"3" == str(3)

>>> str(3) == bytearray("3")

>>> u"3" == bytearray("3")
