I'd like to propose a new 'root' field for django.contrib.sites.models.Site, useful for sites that are deployed under a subdirectory, e.g. ""; Site.root here would be "mysite". The obvious use case is for exposing full urls instead of absolute paths that Django produces and consumes internally, but it may have other usages.

Adding this will break old apps on upgrade, so it's not a trivial addition.

Not a bad idea, but we'd have to wait until some method in core for updating before adding a field to a core model (for a relatively edge use case) is acceptable.

An alternative might be pluggable sites models. See also #2618.

I think it would be a better use of time to try moving the Site model to a setting as discussed on the mailing list.
