 My patch wasn't to replace your's, I'd simply written it before I came
 across this ticket.

 I can see the benefit of filtering $template_name instead of a list of
 directories, although there could be a problem with your patch:

 Windows systems don't use '/' at the beginning of absolute paths, so
 if ( $template_name{0} == '/' && file_exists( $template_name ) ) {
 on line 1084 won't work. The only way to get around that is to just do
 if ( file_exists( $template_name ) ) {
 but that may cause problems for non-absolute paths depending on where the
 filter callback is defined.

 I know windows isn't ideal for development, never mind production, yet
 it's still used for both, and needs to be accommodated for.

 The only solution I can see is to use two filters, one to filter a list of
 directories, and another to filter the template names.
