 In response to @MikeSchinkel, I would certainly hope that theme
 dependencies on plugins are included in the scope of this ticket, and I
 also think that's where you would see a lot of plugins that end users
 would install on their own. Tons of themes bundle widgets, shortcodes,
 custom post types, etc. that are also already offered by plugins. Getting
 that stuff out of themes and into plugins would be a big win for theme
 developers (and users).

 However, it raises the issue of whether this ticket would address
 themes/plugins that support integration with a plugin but don't require
 it. I love that modularized approach that would lead to lighter-weight
 sites and cleaner admins, but integrating with a plugin is definitely
 different than depending on it.
