A quick search[0] also shows that is used by several projects. Changing it from str to bytes will most likely break these programs, so I'm not sure it's a good idea.
Also, if I understand correctly, on Windows still contains str, so it's inconsistent with other systems.
IMHO should contain str, whereas bytes. If they must share the same data I would prefer them to be both str.
