The best one I've come up with and it's far from 'best' is to run a command
that edits css templates and spits them out to the directory they should be
served on at update time. AFAIK DJango can not process the .css files in the
media/static directory on the fly.

But you might be able to trick it, just thought about this as I was writing
above. Have a url in of a regex that ends in '.css' and direct it to
a view that serves your css.

something like this:

url(r'^media/css/(?P<name>[\w-]+)\.css$', 'views.css', name='serve-css'),

with my views.css just for processing css templates.

I don't know how hard it would be to implement or how well it would work, I
haven't done it. It's a thought of this.
