def unicode_keys_to_strings(dictionary):
"""Returns a new dictionary with the same mappings as `dictionary`, but
with each of the keys coerced to a string (by calling :func:`str(key)`).
This function is intended to be used for Python 2.5 compatibility when
unpacking a dictionary to provide keyword arguments to a function or
method. For example::
>>> def func(a=1, b=2):
... return a + b
>>> d = {u'a': 10, u'b': 20}
>>> func(**d)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
TypeError: func() keywords must be strings
>>> func(**unicode_keys_to_strings(d))
return dict((str(k), v) for k, v in dictionary.iteritems())
