If backward compatibility is an issue, perhaps a variable could be added
to control this - something that could be set in a plugin or the
functions.php for the theme.
I've got empty sidebar.php, header.php and footer.php files in my theme
just to keep the default theme items from showing up where they aren't
wanted. I don't see the current situation as a good thing.
