    @neykov that impl isn't a true superset is it?  it looks at ";" if supplied 
and does magic with that according to the spec of the `data` protocol.  i don't 
think that would be appropriate here.
    
    @aledsage the code is fine but i question the use case.  why would an 
effector take `byte[]` if a string is a sensible thing for a person to supply.  
if that's pressing we could introduce a new type 
`CoercibleFromByteArrayOrString` or give multiple input parameters on the 
effector.
    
    this type of low-level coercion feels risky as @geomacy says, even by my 
standards!
