Default Values Ignored?
I've bumped into a problem using dynamodb-mapper stable (1.8.0) from PyPI. I've got a model defined, which has a 'name' field (unicode).
I noticed that the documentation says that unicode keys get an empty string as their default value, if no default is provided--however, in practice, it seems like my 'name' field is getting NO default value (eg: None).
This is causing problems for me, as I've had to go back to my model and explicitly set a default value for my 'name' field to u'', just so that saving my model works--otherwise, validation will fail since None is not ''.
