Here's the patch -- the code for % and %= is in place for bytes and bytearray;  I still need to get the doc patch done.  I'll commit Wednesday-ish barring problems.

Big question
============

Background
----------
There is a Python C ABI function called PyBytes_FromFormat which is used to create bytes objects using the %-interpolation format (it takes a c string and none-or-many c args).

Actual Question
---------------
Should PyBytes_FromFormat also support the new codes of %a and %b ?

My Thoughts
-----------
Writing things down is good!  %a and %b are both for Python level arguments, not C-level arguments, so %a and %b would make no sense.
