An apology on the delay.  Things have been rather hectic.

Regarding a patch, I don't really have a patch so much as a suggested 
procedure.   Basically, I'm suggesting that the maintainers of the 
library documentation simply do a quick survey of network related 
modules and make it clear that many of the operations work on "byte 
strings" and not "strings."     In Python 2.X, you could get away with 
being a little sloppy, but in Python 3, the bytes/strings distinction 
becomes much more prominent.

If I have time, I might be able to make a specific patch, but it 
probably wouldn't be until after PyCON sometime.
