Since you pretty much shouldn't do anything with sessions or logins on a public site without SSL, I think a solid majority of public Django sites probably ought to be all-SSL. Given this, I think Django core should provide good support for all-SSL sites out of the box.

HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) is an HTTP response header that allows a site to tell a browser to only ever access it over HTTPS. This avoids the need for redirect-to-SSL on repeat visits and reduces exposure to various types of attacks.

There is an existing implementation of HSTS in django-secure.
