Support for Django 1.9 #13

Before Django 1.9 the easy-pjax library used the django.template.base.add_to_builtins private API to automatically register itself in the template built-ins after it was added to the INSTALLED_APPS list.
This workaround was due to the fact that the {% load %} tag cannot be placed before the {% extends %} tag and the pjax template filter could not be loaded explicitly.

Starting from Django 1.9 easy-pjax does not have to rely on such workarounds because Django now provides a clean way to add filters and tags to template built-ins.
This is now the recommended and the only way of installing easy-pjax template tags, also because the add_to_builtins API was removed.

This is a backward incompatible change, but one that makes the integration more explicit and following the Zen of Python.

Example of configuration settings to be used starting from Django 1.9:

        "BACKEND": "django.template.backends.django.DjangoTemplates",
        "DIRS": [],
        "APP_DIRS": True,
        "OPTIONS": {
            "builtins": [
            "context_processors": [

No changes are required for Django 1.8 or older.
