Issue #7566 has been updated by brixen (Brian Ford).


But as my example shows, if the bytes were in a literal String used to create the Regexp, they are already converted. And everything works just fine.

What's the rationale for not converting \u{}? Just because it is *an* escape sequence doesn't mean it is a *Regexp* escape sequence. Why are they treated the same? It creates inconsistency between two identical Regexps except that one came from a String or Regexp literal with interpolation.

Why are \u{} escape sequences in Regexp literals not converted to bytes like they are in String literals?
