bench_bytes_format.py: micro-benchmark testing a few formats. Some tests are focused on the implementation of _PyBytesWriter to ensure that the optimization is efficient.

Except of a single test (which is not really revelant, it takes less than 500 nanoseconds), all tests are faster.

The b"xxxxxx %s" % b"y" test confirms that the optimization disabling overallocation for the last write is effective.
