When this change was originally made (0846b0c - git-remote-testpy: hash
bytes explicitly , I didn't realised that the "hex" encoding we chose is
a "bytes to bytes" encoding so it just fails with an error on Python 3
in the same way as the original code.

It is not possible to provide a single code path that works on Python 2
and Python 3 since Python 2.x will attempt to decode the string before
encoding it, which fails for strings that are not valid in the default
encoding.  Python 3.1 introduced the "surrogateescape" error handler
which handles this correctly and permits a bytes -> unicode -> bytes
round-trip to be lossless.

At this point Python 3.0 is unsupported so we don't go out of our way to
try to support it.

How about this?
