Careful Peter -- I think you just invited coders to cc you on every
When is a good time to find people on IRC? Still Wednesdays at 2-ish?
Getting back briefly to the semi-original topic on this thread (where
to put "support" files for plugins) -- as much as it did turn into an
ego contest of sorts, in the end I did find the discussion useful.
I'm going to pick a method and use it for my plugins, but the
different arguments for why one location was better or worse than
another were a good dose of perspective.
If I had the chops for it, I would put in a system for in-admin
uploading of Styles for my Pull-Quotes plugin. As it is I wouldn't
trust myself *not* to either introduce security issues OR to make a
system that will break down on half the platforms that aren't just
like mine. Minor plugins don't get the security vetting that core
does -- all the more reason sometimes to introduce certain types of
things to core.

We just veered from "keep it technical" and "no bikeshedding" straight
to "code isn't poetry unless it rhymes" and "code is like a woman"....?
