File storage - Storage objects example does not work

Description

The example at the beginning of

http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/files/#storage-objects

does not work.

>>> from django.core.files.storage import default_storage

>>> path = default_storage.save('/path/to/file', 'new content')

will give you an error:

<type 'exceptions.AttributeError'>: 'str' object has no attribute 'chunks' 

The way to fix is to pass ContentFile('new content') from django.core.files.base. In fact, other examples should be double checked if they expect a string or a ContentFile-like object.

See http://groups.google.com/group/django-users/browse_thread/thread/230a8601a4839bd9 for more information.
