Separating user uploaded media from site-specific media seems to be meaningful. Thus a separate STATIC_URL, STATIC_ROOT setting would be helpful.
A description of this approach is given by Peter Baumgartner.
The attached patch adds STATIC_URL and STATIC_ROOT to global_settings defaulting them to MEDIA_URL and MEDIA_ROOT, respectively.
The patch works with 1.1 and trunk too.
