String (str) being rejected for not being of type unicode
I just upgraded from an early release (1.2) to 1.8 and am getting this error:
InvalidList: expected value of type unicode. Got 'en' of type <type 'str'> for dictionary value @ data['lang']
My schema calls for the field to be a unicode type, but up till now would accept a standard Python string. Shouldn't dnamodb-mapper automatically coerce a string into unicode?
