str8 was renamed to bytes in 0d462d789b18.

Now OutputWindow is not sys.stdout and sys.stdout has own argument
check. If someone uses OutputWindow directly (not sys.stdout) as output
_binary_ file (because OutputWindow supports binary output), then he
would be expected that write will return the number of written bytes.
Can we break those expectations?
