django-admin.py patch to add warning for missing “startproject” subcommand.

A while back, I mentioned that django-admin.py will not show the “startproject” command if you have a DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE environment variable set. This behavior is documented, but it can still confuse the heck out of anyone who sees the behavior and doesn’t think to check the manual (i.e.: probably most people).

I finally created a patch to add a warning message and added it to an old ticket at code.djangoproject.com.
