From this thread on the developer mailing list
I understand that the Django team is keen on supporting alternate ways of packaging django: in a zip-file, in a jar-file(Jython) or other "frozen" formats.
One place that'll need fixing to achieve this is to update the command framework.
The find available commands, the current Django code is browsing the command subdirectories and looking for files that end with a .py extension
To support alternate packaging, the code should use the proper Python APIs to iterate over the available modules in a package.
A patch along these lines was already included with #5825. (The patch would need updating to the SVN version however - Once this ticket is accepted I can take care of it.)
