Regression in serializers when using natural keys

Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


The Python serializer's handle_fk_field() method now no longer handles the case where a related object is None and natural keys are in use. The problem appears to have been introduced in this changeset:

The code now no longer checks to see if the related object is not None before attempting to call natural_key() on it.
