Plus, isn't "wp-content" the only folder people /do/ touch?
And now that we're at it, shouldn't we shove these go into a "feed-templates" folder? Let's clean this place up! :^)

I love it! So the arguments against are simultaneously:
(1) Users are too stupid to not touch more than one folder.
(2) Users are to smart enough that they can "just create symlinks".

Everything would still be under the "wordpress" folder, and there's no reason that the older, less-convenient places for these items <grin> couldn't be supported as well.
I know everyone here is used to it, but conceptually, it's odd to hear themes, plug-ins and widgets referred to as "content".
