I agree that the codec shouldn't "decode" unicode strings. However, the operation performed is still meaningful: users may type ACE (ascii-compatibly-encoded) DNS names into a user interface, and the application may then represent this as a "proper" Unicode name.

So I propose these changes:

- remove support for bytes in codec, but only so for 3.3 (it's actually no change in behavior, since it will continue to raise TypeErrors)
- add a function decode_idna to the module, for users that wish to un-IDNA string objects.
