Add use_ssl as a param to HttpResponseRedirect, such as:

return HttpResponseRedirect('/foo', True)

I know there are middleware options, but they involve a double redirect. This is a HUGE issue for me and I would assume others.

Why does middleware require a double redirect? Couldn't middleware force the 'https:" on the location header in the response? I think django-secure will do this for you. There's also another ticket, 17102, to add this feature to Django itself.
