KeyError: 'to' in MigrationAutodetector with uncommon rel.to setup (django-taggit)

I am getting a KeyError exception, when running manage.py migrate a second time on a Django 1.7 project (fresh DB, but migrated from 1.6).

It seems like Django expects a key "to" in the field's deconstructor, which is not provided by the deconstructor.


% manage.py migrate
Operations to perform:
  Synchronize unmigrated apps: djsupervisor, autocomplete_light, reversion, sessions, admin, grappelli, sites, auth, compressor, contenttypes, django_extensions, template_debug, sekizai, django_pdb, crispy_forms

Synchronizing apps without migrations:
  Creating tables...

  No migrations needed.

    del deconstruction[2]['to']
KeyError: 'to'

I have tried to add a testcase for this, but failed - I've stopped when it got too bloated.. :/
There should be one added probably to tests/migrations/test_autodetector.py.

I had reported the issue initially at: https://github.com/alex/django-taggit/issues/206

Here is a pull request: https://github.com/django/django/pull/2426

NOTE: I am not sure, if this is a bug with django-taggit instead, which should have returned to in its deconstruction (since it has rel.to setup).

I can reproduce it here, and indeed this will fix the problem.
