This will be mainly useful for developers who are constantly changing their model and rebuilding the database.
When doing the development I use sqlite, and I have a batch file that I run to delete the database and then run ' syncdb' to recreate the model with all the changes that I have done. It will be nicer if syncdb does not ask for user input (right now it asks for a user to create.) Maybe it should read its input from some configuration file ( is a good candidate.) Along with this, it will be also nice if instead of just creating '' it would read the site name from also.

I'm not a huge fan of putting a plaintext default password in the default settings file. Also, you can avoid the problem you're having by only resetting the tables in the app you're changing, not all apps. (E.g., sqlreset.)

As an alternative solution, a script can use Django's dispatcher to disconnect the event django/contrib/auth/ fires when the table is created.
