<br><br>I believe there are some more opportunities for code sharing between PyString and PyBytes both in methods already existing in stringobject and bytesobject and in some of the Objects/stringlib/transmogrify.h code that this patch adds. I tried to share as much as possible to avoid both bloat and most importantly multiple copies of the same algorithms. That could be considered additional cleanup or optimization.
