|| I'd love a better term. It seems we could use several new names:
| 1. a new name for what PEP 3137 calls buffer

The definining difference is mutability or editability, so 'mubytes' or 

| 2. a new name for the union of bytes and buffer (*)

Bytable (ABC) = able to be split into bytes.

| 3. a new name for all types  supporting the "buffer API"

MemBuf, MemArray, MemRay
