One doubt which has just crept up on me is if these classes:
ASCII, ASCIILine, URI, Id, DottedName
should still inherit from Bytes on Python 3. It seems more logical that
they should inherit from Text. I had to do some gymnastics to keep them
bytes on python 3 and feel all dirty about it.
DottedName, in particular, describes itself as "Python-style dotted
names". But in Python 3 this code works:
>>> from 漢語 import Español
so a DottedName could be '漢語.Español' under Python 3. Definitely
unicode and not Bytes.
However, changing the behaviour of these classes between Python 2 and 3
may be even more problematic.
Another option is simply to have these classes raise NotImplementedError
in their validate() methods under Python 3 and wait till the solution
becomes more obvious.
Anyone out there willing to assuage my doubts?
