def autodiscover_modules(*args, **kwargs):
    Auto-discover INSTALLED_APPS modules and fail silently when
    not present. This forces an import on them to register any admin bits they
    may want.

    You may provide a register_to keyword parameter as a way to access a
    registry. This register_to object must have a _registry instance variable
    to access it.
