Why would we need bytes.fill(length, value)? Is b'\xVV' * length (or if value is a variable containing int, bytes((value,)) * length) unreasonable? Similarly, bytearray(b'\xVV) * length or bytearray((value,)) * length is both Pythonic and performant. Most sequences support multiplication so simple stuff like this can be done easily and consistently; why invent a new approach unique to bytes/bytearrays?
