> type(foo)==type("")

any reason we cannot just make this work, whether foo
contains 8-bit or 16-bit data?

btw, the preferred syntax is:

    isinstance(foo, type(""))

I think it's okay only the latter works, for now (which can
be solved by a simple and stupid hack, while waiting for a
real type hierarchy...)
