    os.walk() supports string and bytes paths, but os.fwalk() always supported only string paths. Proposed patch adds support of bytes paths in os.fwalk().

    shouldn't this get in sooner, as the 3.5.2 documentation says that it behaves exactly like os.walk, with some additions, none of which says "bytes paths are not supported". This looks like a bug to me.

    Bytes path support is os.walk() is not documented. Actual behavior of os.fwalk() doesn't contradict the documentation.
