I just realized I didn't answer your question. That's just the nature
of how they work: Both must accumulate everything written to the
port, which may include binary data. That naturally makes them the
same. We could tag them so that one will only support getting a
string out, and the other will only support getting a bytes object
out, but that restriction would be artificial.
