[wp-hackers] Theme, plug-in and widget folders

Yeah, -1. All the content should be under one subfolder.
And I have further reason for that... The path to the content dir should be
defined as a variable (potentially defaulted in wp-config.php), and never
hardcoded in the main wp code. This would allow for people to change their
paths (content wouldn't have to be in user-accessible space necessarily!),
change the name (shorten it to 'c' if you want), allow for things like
easier virtual/multiple site deployments (code in wp-config or plugin shifts
which content directory is referenced, etc.). It would also make for
cleaner/easier coding of stuff that references into wp-content (such as
creating files there) -- though that could be alleviated by having some
'other' subdir in content used for the 'dumping ground' (I dunno, '/misc'?).
Just my 2c.
