Sorry, but I disagree. It's so common that I've made my own management
command to do this (it works OK, not perfect, but OK).
MY use case is not copying a site over to another, but rather passing
data between the different devs' sandbox installs, and then up to the
production server when the site is ready for launch. I suspect this is
a pretty usual need.
I do it by calling dumpdata `appname` repeatedly for each cmsplugin
app, which is a list I have to maintain manually, so far, although
with my current setup, it should be pretty straightforward to make it
a separate setting in a non-obtrusive/DRY way. I call it in order, and
dump the files onto different fixture files. I also iterate over
ImagePlugins and FilePlugins to create compressed archives with the
