Bytes paths are deprecated on Windows and their support was not added in os.scandir() for purpose. But this makes harder converting filesystem walking functions to use os.scandir(). We have to add a special case for bytes paths on Windows in every such function (os.walk(), glob.iglob()). This is cumbersome inefficient and errorprone code that slows down common case due to additional checks for special case. It would be better to add a support of bytes paths directly in os.scandir().
