Have you considered ipython? That would let you just typing in import dj then press up, and you can see all the previous imports you've done that start with that string.

If you install ipython, manage.py shell will use it automatically.

@Wilfred Yep, I have (and I use ipython even with this .pythonrc). I say, why press up when it can be automatic?

Very nice. I didn't know this either, and I agree with you on that it's easier and faster. Thanks for sharing.
