doctest.testmod() fails when attempting to echo back a bytes type with
ord() > 128.

def ok():
>>> bytes([255,])


def notOK():
>>> b'\xff'


import doctest

Traceback (most recent call last):
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character '\xff' in
position 141: ordinal not in range(128)

You've included a chr(255) character in your docstring.  You need to
escape the backslash in order to include the bytes representation like
it will be generated.
