 It would be awesome if we could create a '''Page Template''' from within a
 the confines of a '''Plugin'''.

 Currently, we have to create Page Templates from within a '''Theme'''.

 If we could add an action or if WordPress could look inside a plugin's
 directory, we could have Custom Page Templates within a plugin.

 If '''The User''' has a Theme activated that has a persistent sidebar and
 when '''My Awesome Plugin''' requires a page to not have a sidebar (it
 needs to use the full with of a site - or whatever - let your imagination
 run wild), then there is currently little recourse - other than going into
 the theme and adding a Page Template.

 This can leave a Plugin "Theme Dependent".

  * Add a hook for Page Templates
  * Extend WordPress' search for Page Template to include plugin
