I'm using this to store settings in a thread-safe manner on mod_wsgi multithread deployment.

The idea is to import from localsettings import localsettings instead of doing from django.conf import settings and use it as you would use normal settings, with the difference that you can alter settings for the current thread with a middleware (think of altering SITE_ID).

Warning: altering settings is not officially supported and can lead to thread problems.
