[wp-hackers] Custom default settings at install

What's the use case for install.php in WP_CONTENT_DIR?  It's not for a plugin or for a theme, right?  Would it be for a custom distribution of WordPress?

Place a file called install.php in WP_CONTENT_DIR

Define a function called wp_install_defaults() in that file.

Add whatever defaults you want
