a2b_hex and friends accept only byte strings:

>>> binascii.a2b_hex(b'00')
b'\x00'
>>> binascii.a2b_hex('00')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: 'str' does not support the buffer interface

But they could just as well accept ASCII-only unicode strings. Also, with PEP 393, accessing the 8-bit ASCII data doesn't even need a conversion.
