There's enough real-world experience of deploying Django out there now that we should be able to gather together example configuration files for all kinds of different setups. Let's add a directory to the Django distribution (maybe docs/deployment or something) which contains a collection of almost-ready-to-go configuration files for Apache 1.3/2, Lighttpd and so on covering the various ways in which Django can be deployed using them. Ideally people should be able to install the web server of their choice, drop in a config file we've provided, change one or two settings in it (the location of their code base, the domains hosted by the server) and start it up.
This would make deploying Django faster and easier, and would emphasize the production-ready nature of the framework.
For bonus points, comment the example configs heavily with tips on tweaking or improving performance once you're up and running.
