changed SITE_ROOT/NAME to PROJECT_ROOT/NAME in order to be more conve…
updated static bootstrap files to v.3.1.1
updated DJANGO_SETTINGS_MODULE setting if "--setting" option is not set
This has some good stuff, but unfortunately I have to reject it. It's my fault and I apologize. The problem is that this pull request covers many topics, making discussion of individual issues impossible. Each one of the four things changed should be their own pull request.
