In this case the docs are correct and the code has a bug.  The intent was that if the message passed in to BytesGenerator has a policy, that policy should be followed.  If it is not being followed, that's a bug in BytesGenerator.  The tricky part of course is backward compatibility.  Is there code out there depending on this bug?  Anyone want to hazard a guess?

Are there things other than mangle_from_ that are being ignored? 

If we decide it is too risky to fix in BytesGenerator (or maybe only to fix it in a feature release), then I'd pass the whole policy in the else clause, with a comment about what bug it is working around.
