Turns out even with as_string accepting a policy keyword, the example still failed.  It needs to be generating a bytes object, not a string.  Before I even realized that, though, I decided I wanted to add as_bytes (and __bytes__).  So the attached patch does that: adds policy to as_string, and adds new methods as_bytes and __bytes__ to Message.

This patch is only for 3.4.  The 3.3 patch will just delete that part of the policy example, so I'm not going to bother to upload it.
