I'm going to agree with Mike on this one it's just not something even worrying about, it's inherit if the person goes through the trouble to find the svn's for things not publically accessable then they are just going to have to take on the consequences

    I know there "are a lot of things" in the SVN that could be bad if someone did go to the trouble of checking them out then installing them wherever ... just putting the idea out there for discussion on whether or not those themes should be addressed in some fashion.

  Don't forget that every old version of every checked-in theme file is available on subversion too; including security bugs and every bit of bad code, . This is the nature of open code repositories and should remain so.

  I don't think there is any point even thinking about this.
