Geolocation Support for GeoDjango admin

This adds geolocation support to GeoDjango admin maps, using the W3C Geolocation Standrad and as a fallback, Google Gears. Tested under Firefox 3.2, Chrome 5 and Safari 5.

Patch works fine with the default settings, but it might fail if there is a custom projection applied. I am not confident enough with OpenLayers to make the script more aware of the map's current settings.

Not entirely sure if this is appropriate as a part of trunk; it feels like it is something that should be handled as an external plugin of some kind. Marking DDN so someone with GeoDjango experience can shed some light on the topic.

I agree with Russell that this is too specific for the admin. It only allows centering a map on your current position, and this isn't an operation I expect to be very useful in the admin.
