Update on this. On further testing last night, I've seen some
performance issues with Django 1.11 and the REST API. In some cases,
list operations (/patches) against a development instance took ~30
seconds rather than the usual 400-600 mSec response time. Adding
filtering to this doubled or tripled the response time.

Coupled with the fact that Django REST Framework doesn't yet officially
support Django 1.11, I'm no longer comfortable merging these patches
this late in the day. I'm going to merge the DeprecationWarning fixes
for Django versions < 1.10 as part of RC2 (probably tonight), but I'll
defer the remainder until Patchwork 2.1. Hopefully this doesn't affect
