Outputting bytes directly on Hadoop is not possible #22

As Python strings are mapped to typedbytes (UTF-8) strings, it isn't currently possible to output binary data directly without any intermediate transformations of the bytes.

See also https://github.com/tims/lasthbase/issues#issue/3 for more info.

Is this the same as #32?

Sort of, but this is actually fixed by klbostee/typedbytes@976a168 now I think. Outputting typedbytes.Bytes objects should allow the outputting of bytes without any unwanted transformations...
