better story for importing outside Django sites

Description

We do a lot of custom stuff in setting up Django -- splitting between web_scripts and Scripts/django, tweaking the FastCGI wrapper, setting up MySQL in settings.py, etc. This all makes it really easy to start a Django site from scratch, but makes it nonobvious to import a Django site you developed on your local machine with the built-in server.

Options to address include restoring the deleted scripts FAQ on manually setting up Django, so you can do those instructions by hand, and writing a script to scriptsize an existing Django directory.

I couldn't find the old instructions, so I wrote up a new set at http://scripts.mit.edu/faq/127/how-can-i-import-an-outside-django-project. I don't think a script is worthwhile, since I think anybody importing an outside project will have to make some tweaks anyway.
