[New-bugs-announce] [issue3753] bytearray incompatible with bytes

New submission from Pyry Pakkanen <frostburn at suomi24.fi>:

I was expecting that the API function PyArg_ParseTuple(args, "y#:foo",
&cp, &size) would accept a bytearray and implicitly convert it to bytes.
Currently it throws the error:
TypeError: foo() argument 1 must be bytes or read-only buffer, not bytearray
