[New-bugs-announce] [issue24230] tempfile.mkdtemp() doesn't work with bytes paths

New submission from Augie Fackler:

Many things in the OS module work with bytestrings for paths in Python 3, but tempfile isn't so happy. It'd be very useful to be able to have the same bytes-in-bytes-out behavior in tempfile as for the os.path.* methods.

This is something we're working around in hg, but I figured I'd file a bug anyway in case we can improve the situation.
