Running {{{ dumpdata}} fails with the following traceback:

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./", line 11, in ?
  File "/xxx/django/django/core/management/", line 163, in execute_manager
  File "/xxx/django/django/core/management/", line 107, in execute
    self.fetch_command(command_name, argv[0]).run(argv[1:])
  File "/xxx/django/django/core/management/", line 59, in run
    if options.settings:
AttributeError: Values instance has no attribute 'settings'

because it doesn't append its own options to the BaseCommand options_list.
