 Since ticket #17800, initializing settings without a `SECRET_KEY` raises a
 an `ImproperlyConfigured` during settings initialization.

 Instead, I think the error should be raised when the setting is
 ''accessed'' as `Settings.SECRET_KEY`.

 My use case, my project has a number of management commands that run in a
 non-production, minimally configured environment. These management
 commands do not require `SECRET_KEY`, however, the environment is forced
 to provide one.

 As a workaround this environment has been generating a random secret key
 each run. If Django were to instead raise the error on `SECRET_KEY`
 access, this workaround would not be necessary.
