makesockaddr() in socketmodule.c calls PyBytes_FromStringAndSize() when the
first byte is a null byte.

My opinion is not worth much in this matter :). The socket documentation does
say that AF_UNIX addresses are "represented as a string, using the file system
encoding", so the implementation looks wrong. However it is possible that
PyUnicode_DecodeFSDefault() fails for some file system encodings when the
encoded address contains null bytes ?
