I've added a sanity checker to keep a value as a python str type

blob be returned to the client.
Shouldn't you try to parse it as a unicode string and catch TypeError to
know when to return it as binary ?
What we do now is the equivalent of unicode(chr(0)) which returns
u'\x00' and is why we are failing now.
I believe there is a unicode category module, we might be able to use
that if there is a category that defines non-printable characters.
