The upcoming Django 1.3 provides a few new settings that are supposed to be used for non-user generated files (STATIC_URL and STATIC_ROOT) and will be used by Django's media framework (forms, admin etc). I think it'd be useful to adopt those for mediasync, too.
If I read the 1.3 docs correctly, the only change needed by mediasync would be to first check for STATIC_* settings and then fallback to MEDIA_* if static does not exists. Sound about right?
Just committed Rob's changes for this. Thanks!
