I still think that using `bytes` rather than `list[byte]` would be a good move (at least from IDL `byte[]` types, if not for `uint8[]` types). Yes, it would be a breaking change, but it would be a *good* breaking change and most dependent code would be very easy to update (and likely get a nice speed boost).

Agreed :+1:
We are planning on revisiting the mapping of all primitive types as we migrate to IDL 4.2 later this release cycle, will make sure to take all the feedback from this thread into account when doing so.
