django-admin.py should give feedback

I don't want to say "Django should be more like Rails", but the 'rails' script and all of the things in a Rails project's scripts/ directory emit useful feedback which is reassuring at the very least. The django-admin.py script emits nothing unless there is an error - that is, unless it is a command that generates SQL. This can be confusing. My proposal is to at least provide a summary of what is the command does.
Another idea: move the sql-generating commands to a separate script. This will help users know what to expect from the admin scripts.
