Description

What's the explanation for having the PREPEND_WWW setting? Can't the same effect always be achieved using web server configuration instead?

Besides, I think Django should propagate no-www-prefix instead, or at least provide a REMOVE_WWW setting, too.

Django provides a way to have consistent URLs. You don't have to use it if you don't want to. There's no need to change anything, though. No-www is very controversial (and somewhat suspect on a technical grounds), so we're not about to insist that everybody follows that pattern. Again, you're not obligated to use what Django provides, but we do provide a way to do canonicalisation if that's useful to you.
