 MySQL >=5.6.1 support accurate spatial functions, a.k.a,
 [https://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.6/en/spatial-function-reference.html
 ST_ functions]. Django 1.11 still uses MySQL's old MBR (minimum bounding
 rectangle) functions.
 \\
 I am willing to migrate my
 [https://github.com/shiviser/django/tree/1.9.2_ST_build patch for django
 1.9.2] to django 1.11 and create a pull request.

 Here is an elaborated [https://www.percona.com/blog/2013/10/21/using-the-
 new-mysql-spatial-functions-5-6-for-geo-enabled-applications/ article] on
 the advantages of the new MySQL's **ST_ functions**.
