Shipping F21 with Django 1.6 as the default will *definitely* have us
kicking ourselves in 6 months. And shipping 1.7 by default will make
lots of Django users/devs happy.

Definitely bring it up to FESCo, but it's probably riskier to be
shipping something that will become unsupported within the release
lifetime than to upgrade to the newer version.
