Why do I need to wrap the field in unicode() to make it usable?

unicode(self.order_id)

If I don't I get:

coercing to Unicode: need string or buffer, StringUUID found

This makes it impossible to use in eg. the modellist without wrapping it in a method.

This was actually a significant issue for me when I performed an upgrade. I ended up doing this:

class CustomUUIDField(UUIDField):
def to_python(self, value):
val = super(CustomUUIDField, self).to_python(value)
return str(val)

And then simply using my custom uuid field everywhere instead.
