`bytes` is a list of integers.  Passing a single integer to `bytes()`, as in:

   --> bytes(7)
   b'\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00'

results in a bytes object containing that many zeroes.

I propose that this behavior be deprecated for eventual removal, and a class method be created to take its place.
