I can look at enhancing the tests at some stage, but it isn’t a high priority for me.

Regarding translate() with no arguments, it makes sense if you see it as a kind of degenerate case of neither using a translation table, nor any set of bytes to delete:

x.translate() == x.translate(None, b"")

I admit it reads strange and probably isn’t useful. If people dislike it, it might be easiest to just add the keyword support and keep the first parameter as mandatory:

without_nulls = bytes_with_nulls.translate(None, delete=b"\x00")
