Not that my opinion particularly matters, but I would say "sure" to this 
one.  On the other hand, I really don't use raw strings that often, and 
the places I do are pretty much solely regexes, which shouldn't really 
be passed bytes.

What would:
translate into, exactly?
[ 97, 98, 99, 10, 100, 101, 102 ]?
[ 97, 98, 99, 13, 10, 100, 101, 102 ]?
Platform-dependent?  (Ewwww!)
