I agree that the inconsistency should be fixed. But I'm not sure that we should use the words "an Unicode object" in Python 3.

In many similar cases ("a bytes object", "a type object", "a module object") the name of Python type is used. "unicode" was a name of Python type in Python 2. In Python 3 it is "str". The term "Unicode string" also is widely used. Should not we use "a str object", "a string object", "a Unicode string" or "a Unicode string object" in the C API documentation?
