 Currently, manage.py-tpl executes in an
 {{{
 if __name__ == '__main__':
 }}}
  block.

 While this might work when declaring manage.py as script in setup.py, a
 popular convention is to use the entry_point feature of setup.py.

 To add support for entry_point in manage.py-tpl we only need to move the
 code from the if block into a new function ie. main() and call in it in
 the if-block.

 Then, manage.py-tlp will also work as entry_point with
 yourproject.manage:main and using manage.py as script will also still
 work.

 This removes a manual effort every time a project is used by a follower of
 the entry_point convention, without causing any issue for regular users.
