Um.  I'm inclined to think that #13637 was a mistake.

Functions that accept bytes and return bytes and also accept string and return string seem uncontroversial.  However, accepting bytes or string and returning bytes is not an obviously good idea, and IMO at least merits some discussion.  In fact, I thought it *had* been discussed, specifically in the context of the b2a/a2b functions, and been rejected.
