As I understand, you would like to use bytes as characters, like 
b'{code} {message}'.format(code=100, message='OK'). So why no using 
explicit conversion to ASCII? ftp='{code} {message}'.format(code=100, 
message='OK').encode('ASCII').

If you need to work on bytes, it means that you will use the full 
range 0..255 whereas ASCII reject bytes in 128..255.
