I prefer the second solution (add to/frombytes, deprecate to/fromstring) because I prefer the new method names and it keeps backward compatibility (until we choose to remove the old methods, which should be in Python 3.3).

About the patch (tofrombytes.diff). You should use PyErr_WarnEx() result: if it is not nul (eg. if the user choosed to raise exceptions on warnings), you have to exit.
