For the record, we've got a pretty good thread (not this good, though!)
over on the numpy list about how to untangle the mess that has resulted
from porting text-file-parsing code to py3 (and the underlying issue with
the 'S' data type in numpy...)

One note from the github issue:
 The use of asbytes originates only from the fact that b'%d' % (20,) does
not work.

So yeah PEP 461! (even if too late for numpy...)
