Example Code error in Django Docs for Generic Views

There is an error in this piece of documentation:

The example shows the 'direct_to_template' function surrounded by 'single quotes'. However, in the book, it shows the function being called without quotes:

Surrounding the direct_to_template function with quotes yields this error:
TypeError at /
'str' object is not callable

When used without quotes it works fine. Simple correction to 'djangoproject' documentation is required.

If you're getting an error, you're doing something wrong. It's not an error to specify a view name as a string.
