I don't disagree with this simplification, but given that you all want
to pare down the unittest API, I'd be interested in your opinions on
issue 10164.  Because the assertBytesEqual method takes an optional
argument, it seems like it would need to be documented, even though
it would in a lot of cases just be used through assertEqual.
