Non-informative error when URL is not properly configured

New into Django, I just stumbled across this when I was trying to do the Tutorial (which is great, by the way).

When the patterns are not properly configured in, for instance in this case:

urlpatterns = patterns('', # notice that i forgot to do 'polls.views' here
    (r'^$', 'index'),
    (r'^(?P<poll_id>\d+)/$', 'detail'),
    (r'^(?P<poll_id>\d+)/results/$', 'results'),
    (r'^(?P<poll_id>\d+)/vote/$', 'vote'),

The error just says 'str' object is not callable (I'm attaching full HTML). Digging further down I saw in Local args that callback = detail, and that raised the suspicion and I found it.

I think a more meaningful error, saying that the URL was matched to callback 'detail' and the corresponding view could not be found, would be nice.
