According to the discussion on Python-Dev [1] alternate constructors should return an instance of the subclass (else why invoke it through the subclass). bytes.fromhex() and bytearray.fromhex() are the only exceptions.

I think bytes.fromhex() and bytearray.fromhex() should be changed to match the behavior of all other alternate constructors.
