I realize it's in the current functions too, but is there a good
reason to fall back on the default theme if the file isn't found? I
mean, as an end-user, I don't have a perception that the default theme
is any different than any other theme, so it's pretty unexpected
behaviour. (Maybe I deleted 'sidebar.php' because I decided that I
didn't want a sidebar at all?)

So my vote goes for something like:

	function get_template($type) {
		if ( $template = get_query_template($type) )

Either way it'd be good to use get_query_template(), so we get the
"{$type}_template" filters that are already used everywhere else.
