When I said Horizon was broken, I didn’t mean it was broken just for
me. It simply don’t work (correctly) with Django 1.10.

So any “hack” isn’t going to benefit the greater community. We could
really need 1.8 and/or 1.9 into the official repos so that the Horizon
deps could be changed with an OR..
