Fixed #24704 -- Made the autoreloader survive SyntaxErrors.

With this change, it's expected to survive anything except errors
that make it impossible to import the settings. It's too complex
to fallback to a sensible behavior with a broken settings module.

Harcoding things about runserver in ManagementUtility.execute is
atrocious but it's the only way out of the chicken'n'egg problem:
the current implementation of the autoreloader primarily watches
imported Python modules -- and then a few other things that were
bolted on top of this design -- but we want it to kick in even if
the project contains import-time errors and django.setup() fails.

At some point we should throw away this code and replace it by an
off-the-shelf autoreloader that watches the working directory and
re-runs `django-admin runserver` whenever something changes.

The documentation in this tree is in plain text files and can be viewed using
any text file viewer.

It uses ReST (reStructuredText) [1], and the Sphinx documentation system [2].
This allows it to be built into other forms for easier viewing and browsing.

To create an HTML version of the docs:

* Install Sphinx (using ``pip install Sphinx`` or some other method)

* In this docs/ directory, type ``make html`` (or ``make.bat html`` on
  Windows) at a shell prompt.

The documentation in _build/html/index.html can then be viewed in a web browser.
