I keep getting this warning by e-mail. I'm using my Django installation as an API and therefore have no need of a favicon what so ever. Is there some way of making Django ignore requests for the /favicon.ico when accessing some other URL, or do I really have to create a favicon.ico-file for this sole purpose?!

You could use mod_rewrite in your httpd.conf to rewrite the favicon requests to something else (or perhaps block the user agents that are requesting favicons), or you could simply turn off email notifications for 404 errors in your Django settings.
