I'm not the one labeling anything as being silly.  I'm the one labeling
the things as bullshit, and that's what you're doing here.  I can in
fact say what the internal byte string representation of strings is any
given build of Python 3.  Just because I can't say what it would be in
an imaginary hypothetical implementation doesn't mean I can never say
anything about it.
