added infor for updating TEMPLATE_LOADERS

Namespace Simplification

On django-developers, we discussed some changes to the django namespace, and adding a new "shortcuts" module to allow 1 line imports for common tasks. These changes are part of RemovingTheMagic.

Here's a summary of what should be done:

Move httpwrappers

Status: Done

Move django.utils.httpwrappers, plus the Http404 exception. to django.http

Move template

Status: In progress

Move django.core.template to django.template

Rename DjangoContext to ??? and move to django.template (name still not decided)

You will need to update TEMPLATE_LOADERS in your settings from

TEMPLATE_LOADERS = (
    'django.core.template.loaders.filesystem.load_template_source',
    'django.core.template.loaders.app_directories.load_template_source',
#    'django.core.template.loaders.eggs.load_template_source',
)

to

TEMPLATE_LOADERS = (
    'django.template.loaders.filesystem.load_template_source',
    'django.template.loaders.app_directories.load_template_source',
#    'django.template.loaders.eggs.load_template_source',
)

Move formfields

Status: Not started

Move django.core.formfields to django.forms

Add "shortcuts" modules for common tasks

Status: Not started

Add django.shortcuts.views, django.shortcuts.templatetags, what else?
