Right, the lack of transitivity comes from the fact that:

    >>> u"3" == str(3)
    True

Is really shorthand for:

    >>> u"3" == str(3).decode("ascii")
    True

However, the implicit decoding only triggers for *exactly* bytes instances, so in the bytearray case it needs to be explicit:

    >>> u"3" == bytearray(b"3").decode("ascii")
    True
