I don't think calculating hash() for large bytes is not so common use case.
Rare use cases may not justify adding 8bytes to basic types, especially users expect it is compact.

Balance is important. Microbenchmark for specific case doesn't guarantee the good balance.
So I want real world examples. Do you know some popular libraries that are depending on hash(bytes) performance?

> Is it possible to let code objects use other types? In addition to ob_hash, maybe the extra byte \x00 at the end can be saved.

Of course, it is possible. But it needs large refactoring around code, including pyc cache file format.
I will try it before 3.13.
