They do have some rather odd behavior when passed to the builtin though:

>>> bytes(10)

It would be much more convenient for me if bytes(int) returned the ASCIIfication of that int; but honestly, even an error would be better than this behavior.  (If I wanted this behavior - which I never have - I'd rather it be a classmethod, invoked like "bytes.zeroes(n)".)
