[New-bugs-announce] [issue3982] support .format for bytes

New submission from Benjamin Peterson <musiccomposition at gmail.com>:

I just working on porting some networking code from 2.x to 3.x and it
heavily uses string formatting. Since bytes don't support any kind of
formatting, it's becoming tedious and inelegant to do it with "+". Can
.format be supported in bytes?

[I understand format is implemented with stringlib so shouldn't it be
fairly easy to implement?]
