 I couldn't find a ticket proposing this, so here it is.

 The theme and plugin editor in the Admin do more harm than good. Those who
 know how to use them know better than to use them. Those who use them
 don't know the consequences. In my consultancy, we get a sizable number of
 requests from people who "broke their site" because they wanted to remove
 a line of text from the footer, headed straight to Appearance > Editor and
 added a couple of fatal PHP errors along the way.

 At the risk of losing a lot of business (!), I think it's time to hide the
 File Editor by default.
