From feature request on django-devel:

The technology formerly known as Rendezvous, yes. When you start a
turbogears project with, tg tells Bonjour of its
existence and you can view it simply by pulling it down from the
Bonjour menu in Safari's Bookmarks Bar. If the project is stopped, the
site is removed from Bonjour. It's way easier than typing
http://localhost:port in the address bar. It would be nice if I could
do python runserver, then just switch to Safari and pull the
site down from the Bookmark Bar.

This patch adds this capability to Django. Usage:

python --bonjour runserver `hostname`.local:8000

Because of limitations in dns-sd it only works for .local domains. I'm new to this whole Bonjour thing so some insights from people who have more experience would be appreciated.

This is feature-creep, and frankly not all that useful.
