There's been discussion on pydev about changing this, but for now
I believe a str is a sequence of bytes in Python, rather than a
string of characters. My current project (an implementation of
the Glk API in Python) would be more troublesome to write if I
had to store all my latin-1 character strings as lists or arrays
of bytes.
