Review binary typecasters in Py3

Reported by Daniele Varrazzo | February 1st, 2011 @ 11:08 AM | in python3 (closed)

In current Py3 implementation the typecaster receive a decoded string. This means that is basically impossible to have a binary typecaster in python.

Idea: add a "binary" flag (or a "type", currently only "text" and "binary" would be meaningful) to the typecaster type. It would default to text on Python 3 and either default to binary in Python 2 or not available at all. The create_type would grow an optional parameter with the proper default. Use the value to decide whether to pass a binary or a decoded text to the typecaster function.
