Comment(by apeatling):

 I've attached a new patch that allows registration of a new a theme
 directory. WordPress will then consider this as an additional place to
 look for themes.

 register_theme_directory( 'plugins/my-plugin/bundled-themes' );

 All directories must be relative to the content directory.

 This was considerably more in-depth than I expected. The hardest part was
 getting the get_template_directory[_uri]() and
 get_stylesheet_directory[_uri]() functions to look in varying theme roots
 depending on the theme in use. Currently get_theme_root() simply returns a
 filterable "wp-content/themes" value with no theme parameters to allow us
 to determine where to look.

 The solution was to make sure that the $wp_themes global was available and
 loop through that matching the template or stylesheet name, then use the
 new theme root/theme root uri value. I'm not completely happy with this
 method though, it seems quite inefficient. I'm sure there is a better way,
 but it's a start.
