Right, but we're not writing builtin type methods specifically for Twisted. I agree with the idea that the feature set should very limited, actually perhaps more limited than what you just said. For example, I think any kind of implicit str->bytes conversion is a no-no (including the "r" and "a" format codes).

Still, IMO even a simple feature set warrants a PEP, because we want to devise something that's generally useful, not just something which makes porting easier for Twisted.

I also kind of expect Twisted to have worked around the issue before 3.4 is out, anyway.
