No, because y*/y# are not correct replacements for t#. They don't
accept Unicode objects.

t# was meant to provide access to text data, so replacing it with a
parser code that is meant for binary data is not correct. The
closes Python3 gets to t# from Python2 is s# or s*, so please use
those in the NEWS entry and s* in charbuffer_encode().
