The reason in which we're (or rather JJJ) is using __FILE__ to identify the
directory in which the plugin is located is in relation to
http://trac.bbpress.org/ticket/1333 which led to
http://trac.bbpress.org/changeset/2566 so if you want to stick the plugin
files into /top-secret-blah-blah-blah/ or just something different from like
/forum/ you can. BuddyPress currently has /buddypress/ hardcoded, but who
knows? Anyway, though I'd let you know about that Rich! :)
