Allow individual app_index templates for different apps
django.contrib.admin allows customization of individual change_list or change_form templates by using a list of templates in the form of (example from render_change_form method):
self.change_form_template or [
"admin/%s/%s/change_form.html" % (app_label, opts.object_name.lower()),
"admin/%s/change_form.html" % app_label,
This mechanism does not work for the app_index template but could easily be implmented. I've attached a diff, which allows placing templates at 'admin/<app_label>/app_index.html' for individual apps, while still allowing global customization by setting the app_index_template class attribute and still falling back to 'admin/app_index.html'
