[magic-removal][patch] mismatch between singular and plural for admin model URLs

There seems to be a mismatch as to how admin model URLs are constructed in magic-removal; as a result, log entries in the admin interface currently do not point to the valid URL path for their corresponding items.

In contrib/admin/templatetags/, admin_url is built in the singular in the render method of AdminApplistNode:

'admin_url': '%s/%s/' % (app_label, m.__name__.lower()),

In contrib/admin/, such a URL is built with pluralization in the get_admin_url method of LogEntry:

return "%s/%s/%s/" % (self.get_content_type().get_package(), self.get_content_type().python_module_name, self.object_id)

python_module_name, in turn, is originally constructed in db/models/ with the following:

get_module_name = lambda class_name: class_name.lower() + 's'

As I'm not certain which is intended as the final case (singular vs. plural), I have refrained from attempting a fix; I'll gladly work up a patch once I know which way this should go.

Summary: [magic-removal] mismatch between singular and plural for admin model URLs[magic-removal][patch] mismatch between singular and plural for admin model URLs

I'm attaching a patch to singularize all the table names, which fixes this ticket and also apparently fixes #1257 as bonus. In addition, this patch alters every table name which formerly went without a leading package (e.g., "content_types") to now begin with "django_", e.g., "django_content_type".

This patch will thoroughly break an existing Django installation; a conversion script is probably necessary for such cases.

(In [2111]) magic-removal: Fixed #1259 -- This is VERY backwards-incompatible! Normalized all table names to be singular. Added 'django_' prefix to core tables that didn't have it. Thanks, Tom Tobin.
