No, I don't think we want to introduce another setting just for this. If you want to change it, you can replace User.get_absolute_url with your own function by assigning to the attribute or use absolute url overrides as mentioned in the associated django-dev thread.

In fact, all the discussion in that thread is interesting, but this particular ticket is not the solution.
