Currently, you need an obligatory {% load %} tag in all you templates if you want to use custom application tags. That's inconvenient. There is a django.template.add_to_builtins() function that accepts a string argument - a module name, which solves the problem. But this function is:

  1. Undocumented
  2. Module name is not convenient

I propose the following mechanism:

from codereview import customtags

django.template.add_library(customtags, default=True)

Duplicate of #17085. Seem like it isn't worth pushing things in this path, but rather aim for the greater refactoring proposed in #17093.
