Sigh, I was wrong, not only does mypy promote bytearray to bytes, it
actually depends on this in its own code. Not for filenames, but for a
regex match. It reads the source into a bytearray, and then passes that to
something that uses regex matches (which *do* support bytearrays, and
rightly so). If I remove the bytearray promotion I run into some type
errors, and if I fix those (without copying data) I run into more type
errors. I guess we could fix it by carefully marking up everything that
takes bytearrays in the stubs, but it's surely inconvenient. So maybe I'll
leave this in mypy for now.
