In this case, you have to be very careful to not mix str and bytes decoded to str using a pseudo-encoding. Dummy example: urljoin('unicode', b'bytes') should raise an error.

I don't care of the internals if you write tests to ensure that it is not possible to mix str and bytes with the public API.
