 In the text strings the Plugin Directory is sometimes named WordPress
 Plugin Directory and sometimes WordPress.org Plugin Directory.
 It would be a good thing to have a consistent name for this.
 The same is true for the Theme Directory.

 On the Dutch translation team we regard this as a product name, and
 translate it as such. I wouldn't dare to decide on if the name should be
 one or the other.
 I think WordPress Plugin Directory is cleaner, shorter and more readable.
 I think WordPress.org Plugin Directory makes a clear distinction from
 WordPress.com, allthough I wonder if that is even needed.

 Attached are two patches, of which only one can be applied.
 patch 1: wordpress_45_productnames.diff, uses WordPress Plugin Directory.
 patch 2: wordpress_45_productnames_org.diff, uses WordPress.org Plugin
 The patches change the plugin directory name and the theme directory name.
