According to the documentation, if the 'compile' built-in function encounters NUL bytes in the compiled source, it raises TypeError, but this is not true:

>>> source = '\u0000'
>>> compile(source, '', 'single')
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
ValueError: source code string cannot contain null bytes

It raises ValueError, not TypeError. And IMHO, it's the proper exception to raise...
