Support for using non namespaced jQuery #1

I noticed while installing this today that it picks up the Django jQuery for widgets, this is fine for admin but if you're not using the namespaced version on custom apps it'll fail.

Quick hack to get around it is to assign jQuery to the namespace (excuse my poor JS skills):

var django = {'jQuery': $}

Ideally the widget should check for a global version before switching to the Django namespaced version, that way it'll work for custom apps and won't flounder in Admin.

I was thinking something along the lines of the following:

if (typeof django == 'undefined' || typeof django.jQuery == 'undefined' ) {
    jq = $;
} else {
    jq = django.jQuery

Hi @nikdoof, could you try the small patch that i just committed on the master? I just added the following:

var ee = {
  'jQuery': (typeof window.django != 'undefined') ? django.jQuery : jQuery.noConflict(true)

(function($) {
