Unicode XML breaks RelaxNGCompact validator

In Django, the RelaxNGCompact validator writes out the field data to a temp file, then shells out to jing to perform RNG validation on that XML.

It's been broken for unicode data since the unicode branch landed. I guess not that many people use the RelaxNGCompact validator. ;-)

The fix is trivial-- just call smart_str on field data on its way into the file.

I'd provide tests, but I'm sort of overworked at the moment. :-/

At some point after I logged this, the XML validator was removed from trunk. Closing this as wontfix.
