Incorrect pydoc in django.template.loaders.app_directories.load_template_source

Reported by: kylev Owned by: nobody

The pydoc for this code is misleading:

Wrapper for loading templates from "template" directories in INSTALLED_APPS

In fact, the code builds the template path thusly:

template_dir = os.path.join(os.path.dirname(mod.__file__), 'templates')

Please fix the pydoc to say "templates/" as it will reduce frustration a little when building self-contained apps. It might also be useful to mention in tutorials that this functionality is in place by default, since it alleviates the need to fiddle with the project-wide TEMPLATE_DIRS setting.
