I have a plugin (shadowbox-js) that will allow users to have custom
skins.  I have recently updated the plugin so that the url to the skin
has a filter applied to it so that a user can put the skin directory
where ever they want and then do an add_filter on the skin url.

I prefer this type of solution over having a directory that will not
get overridden.  But that is, of course, my personal preference.

So I say -1
