Django 1.6 compatibility issue: quoting issues in resource URIs #1040

I have a user resource where detail_uri_name = "username", and username is an email address. This looks something like /api/v1/user/

Django 1.6 release notes mention the following:

When reversing URLs, Django didn’t apply urlquote() to arguments before interpolating them in URL patterns. This bug is fixed in Django 1.6. If you worked around this bug by applying URL quoting before passing arguments to reverse(), this may result in double-quoting. If this happens, simply remove the URL quoting from your code.

Now, user resources are like so: resource_uri: "/api/v1/user/",.

Admittedly, I don't know which is the correct form. I don't think it should be encoding things in the output, but it causes a graver issue elsewhere.
When modifying resources that have a user foreignkey, we get the following crash:

    raise NotFound("The URL provided '%s' was not a link to a valid resource." % uri)
NotFound: The URL provided '/api/v1/user/' was not a link to a valid resource.

For now, a workaround I'm using is to add the following in get_via_uri in the user resource:

    def get_via_uri(self, uri, request=None):
        from urllib import unquote
        uri = unquote(uri)
        return super(UserResource, self).get_via_uri(uri, request)

But this needs to be taken care of for Django 1.6 compatibility.
