I go to ZMI -> portal_metadata -> Elements -> Subjects, then I add a few
values to a vocabulary. By printing the values in
CMFDefault/MetadataTool.py/MetadataElementPolicy/edit() I can see that
they are of str type, not unicode. I don't know by which type they are
supposed to be stored, but it seems to me it's not unicode.

Later I do something like:

mtool = getToolByName(self, 'portal_metadata'(
subjects = mtool.listAllowedSubjects(content_type='Event')
for subject in subjects:
    print type(subject)

If I print what's in subjects I can see those are of type str.

Do you mean that the metadata tool should store everything in unicode?
