Design question here: compare_digest on Python 3 supports comparing str (text) objects, if they're both ascii-only. This feature is provided, primarily, so you can compare hexdigests or similar.

Should the Python 2 version support comparing unicodes? Arguments in favor: some amount of consistency. Against: it's not necessary because hexdigest is still a str (binary), further it's not actually posisble to replicate the ascii only semantic.
