Needs tests: set

Can you please summarize the discussion and explain what use case this solves? Tests are also needed.

I want to make Django 1.10 fully compatible with my urlpatterns configuration. I use a custom urlresolver module (notmm.utils.urlmap) to allow mapping url patterns to named views:

from notmm.utils.urlmap import RegexURLMap
urlpatterns = RegexURLMap()
 (r'^index.html$', 'index'),

add_routes() automatically create a fully qualified callback object to ensure the view function is a callable. However, Django doesn't handle fully qualified module names in reverse() without this patch.

I guess you might be running into problems because Django 1.10 removed support for string view arguments in url() (a25d3ce007b90a0516aed54fc1c5a16510a290e4 and/or 785cc71d5b3300e2702b0b2fc7316e58ca70b563). I'm not sure whether or not we can accommodate the use case, but as-is your patch crashes the test suite.
