I still don't see a *failure* here. AFAICT, it all works correctly.
In particular, I fail to see the advantage of using bytes over using
escaped strings, in terms of correctness. I'm even skeptical that there
is an advantage in terms of usability (and if there is, I'd like to see
a demonstration of that, as well).
