If I try to follow the chain the consequences:
 - all PyArg_ParseTuple("s#") calls that release the GIL afterwards
should be re-written to use another API (which one I don't know exactly,
but hopefully the appropriate functions are already provided by the
buffer API); this applies to third-party extension modules as well
 - consequently, forward compatibility is broken in an important way
(but it would probably be ok for py3k)
 - perhaps the bytearray type should not have been backported to 2.6, or
perhaps it should carry a big warning in the documentation
