django-packagemaker a paster tool for making reusable apps

I've just pushed an initial release of a tool that will hopefully make
it easier to make apps more easily shareable.

The idea is something like this: startapp gets you a start, but once you get something to the
point where you might want to share it, now you've got to wrap it up
in all the packaging. This means copying and pasting boilerplate for
a, setting up the dist layout, etc.

This is also required if you want to use your app via pip

This tool uses paste script to automate much of this process and can
be used as an alternative to startapp

The template is opinionated about a few things, and this is just a
start, feedback and contributions welcomed.
