Added the ability for Site objects to have profiles just like the User objects.

Use this in your
SITE_PROFILE_MODULE = "yourAppName.yourModel"
and make sure that model has a foreign key to the django.contrib.sites.models.Site model.

Now the Site object gets a get_profile()

This helps with multiple sites where each site had maybe a different zip code, Welcome message, etc. and it can all be edited through the admin site.

User profiles haven't been very convincing. They've been deprecated in Django 1.5 in favor of custom user models.

Site profiles probably wouldn't fare better. You could make a case for custom site models. If you're interested, please send a concrete proposal to the django-developers mailing list.
