FYI I just finished (I hope!) to bug on os.walk(bytes) on Windows with
the "emulated" scandir (since os.scandir() only works on Unicode on
Python 3.5+):

Since I helped you to write your PEP 471 (scandir) as the
BDFL-delegate, I think that I now understand well scandir(). So I can
help you to maintain your backport.
