_compat: Change the to_native_str into a to_unicode_str function.

The to_native_str function was supposed to produce Unicode decoded
native strings for python2 and python3.

Upon further consideration this doesn't make much sense since under
python2 it would need to decode the bytes into a Unicode string and turn
it back into a python2 str.

The ability to use the replacement character requires us to use a
Unicode string under python2 as well.
