The null character is allowed in __name__ setter (but error message is a little confusing).

>>> class A: pass
>>> A.__name__ = 'B\0'
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: __name__ must not contain null bytes

But is allowed in type constructor.

>>> t = type('B\0C', (), {})
>>> t
<class '__main__.BC'>
>>> t.__name__
