Monkey patch for dango in local_settings

Hello The wing documentationsuggests to add the monkey patch in local_settings.py on your development system. What is meant with this? If the this a django settings I am reluctant to have in my settings which is in git a patch which is devoted to a pecific IDE Il it is in another file I do not understand how the file can be called. Should I add it into the project properties?

I'm not sure if Django automatically loads a file named local_settings.py or if you need to add something like the following to your settings.py:

try:
    from local_settings import *
except ImportError:
    pass

Then you would not check local_settings.py into revision control and have it only on your development system(s).

That said, I'm not sure if this is even needed anymore with modern Django versions. When your code hits an unexpected exceptions, does it stop in Wing? If so you don't need this.
