Comment (by richard):

 Interesting idea.  It seems mildly insane to me at first impression, but
 it might possibly work well.  My concern is that it would cause more work
 for users than necessary; I'm not actually sure how often users would be
 getting data back from Xapian and actually want to treat it as a string,

 If we did this, we'd certainly want to make sure that Xapian accepted
 these BS objects anywhere where a str or bytes was accepted, too, so that
 data coming out of xapian could be fed back in (after whatever munging the
 user desired).

 I'm -0 on this idea, because I think it's unnecessary complexity, but
 reserve the right to downgrade or upgrade that after thinking a bit more.
