Many APIs only accept byte strings. On Python 3, only native (unicode) strings support string interpolation though. This makes it convenient to use native strings to construct a value (eg to be written to a socket), but Python 3 then requires an encode step whereas Python 2 does not. A function to smooth over this difference would simplify some code.

  1. Add a @param indicating it takes a str as input.
  2. Given it has a particular use case, maybe the docstring should mention that, i.e. give an example of using it for string formatting?
  3. Add new function to __all__.

Fix, then merge.
