[wp-hackers] User folders for themes, plug-ins

How about a solution that separates system and user content, by moving
the system content?  To wit:

- Move system supplied content to a new directory (e.g. wp-syscontent)
- Change core code to look in both this directory and wp-content (with a
priority on one or the other -- that argument yet to be had)
- From then on wp-content is solely a user directory
- On update, don't touch wp-content

This involves only changes to core code, doesn't farkle with user
content directories on update (avoiding the original problem), doesn't
break a bunch of existing plug-ins, and more elegantly separates user
and system content.

So, solutions that break a bunch of plugins, for a bunch of users, seem
be inappropriate if fixing the issue for a very limited number of
servers is
the main pay off.
