I really hate the use of a setting for this (despite the precedent of ABSOLUTE_URL_OVERRIDES, which I don't like either). I do think it's a problem that Django should provide some answer for, so accepting the ticket on that basis. I can't immediately think of a better solution than the setting, but I hope we can think of one.

possible settings are not the best place for this, but this is the most obvious place, if I meet the discrepancy with the code model, I would like to find it in the settings, but not in another application.
