I think django should have a simple and easy way for setting new variables in apps.
I suggest that a app/someapp/default_settings.py file would be imported when it exists and be handled like the global_settings.py
The patch hooks in after the installed_apps got deglobed and sets the default value from default_settings.py if it doesn't exist already in the user conf.
This way, adding new variables is very easy and uniform and apps can use the standard way without much checking for existence of keys.
