Hmm, do you say Python 3 is "cult-like" without survey other popular,
programming languages?

There are many popular languages which separate bytes and unicode
string explicitly and string is not byte-transparent; C#, Java, ECMAScript,
(including families like TypeScript), Rust, Swift, Julia, and more.

I can't agree that it's cult-like behavior.  I think it's practical
design decision.
