Let's depend on convention over configuration at first, keeping it
conceptually simple as we introduce it.  However, any new WP functions that
need to be created could abstract the path to the point that they wouldn't
prevent this from becoming configurable in the future.

I can't think of reason that this would be necessary, but others might.
