Subject: Lowercase UUIDs are invalid without coercion
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 451b
While there is the option to coerce, is it really necessary that UUID's be uppercase? I suppose a purist may argue that hexadecimal characters are only uppercase, but many tools generate lowercase UUIDs (e.g. uuidgen on Ubuntu.) I'm not going to fight for changing the default behavior, but perhaps an update to the documentation to make it clear that uppercase is required by default and that lower case is possible by enabling coerce. Thanks

I forgot to mention that values stored using the UUID data type in PostgreSQL are converted to what it considers a standard form, i.e. lower case. http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.3/static/datatype-uuid.html
This seems to be fixed in 0.03
