Regardless of the various arguments, I think it is too late to break compatibility again, by disallowing bytes input, or changing the output type.
What we could do is allow str arguments to a2b_ functions, with the restriction that the argument must not contain non-ASCII characters.

(Please note that the "a" is for ASCII; otherwise it would be "u" for Unicode :-))
