OK, it isn't worth fighting for. I will update PEP 484. It seems mypy
doesn't support the special treatment bytearray anyway.

For posterity, the reason I thought that bytearray should be accepted is
not that bytearray is better in any way, just that sometimes you might read
a filename off a bytearray that you read off a file or a socket. But it's
clearly not a strong use case (or we had gotten complaints long ago) so
I'll let it go. Sorry!! Thanks for the feedback.
