Specifically, bytes (always, from what I could find) had this error message:

    >>> b'' + ''
    TypeError: can't concat bytes to str

while str, after a change in issue26057, was made to:

    >>> '' + b''
    TypeError: must be str, not bytes

from the previous form of "TypeError: Can't convert 'bytes' object to str implicitly".

I think these could be changed to conform with what the other sequences generate and fall in line with the error messages produced for other operations.

Specifically changing them to:

    >>> b'' + ''
    TypeError: can only concatenate bytes (not 'str') to bytes

and similarly for str.

If this idea makes sense, I can attach a patch that addresses it.
