It's a very pity; I hope you rethink this, IMHO let BString treat only real
Strings (that is UTF-8 ones) and creates a new class for store byte arrays
was the good compromise.
It avoids confusion as name says BString should contain only human readable
strings not garbage arrays if this behavior was premise it was broken and
you're right in fixin' it!
