In the interests of keeping code modular, we do not use manage.py runserver in our projects. Instead, we use django-admin runserver.

This works well, but if one wants to run python with some flags, using the django module, it is insufficient.

It would be ideal if python -m django runserver worked, for this reason. Currently, attempting to do so will yield an import error with similar to the attached traceback.

It looks like something to do with the autoreloader.
