Your backward compatibility argument is persuasive.  As you say, that means the BytesGenerate docs would need to be updated to note that that parameter is the exception to the rule for backward compatibility reasons.  (If it is the only exception I have to wonder if I had a backward compatibility reason for doing it that way in the first place and just forgot to document it.  It is too long ago to remember.  It is even possible that effectively changing the default broke mbox and that's why it is an exception :)

As for the send_message change, if mangle_from_ is the only exception then I think just passing it does make sense, maybe with a comment referencing the BytesGenerator docs for mangle_from_ to explain why it is needed.
