manage.py startapp creates apps in "wrong" path

Description

Historically (before Django 1.4), manage.py startapp created apps in the project directory (since it was inside it), but now, apps are created alongside the project directory unless you specifically indicate otherwise. Since the standard organisation of Django projects places apps inside projects, manage.py should create new apps inside the project directory, as was the case before

There isn't really a concept of "project directory"; a Django project is just a bunch of Python packages.

This change is intentional, and the new layout matches the recommended best practices. Please see the release notes for more information.

Oh, sorry about that. You're right, it's now the new layout. My bad.
