hey Sergi,
I also had some customers in the past who wanted a "complete" stealth wp 

Here is a quick link, to how I realized the wp-admin/wp-login part: 

Works fine on an empty install. As the others already pointed out, 
however you realize this, it can cause all sorts of compatibility issues 
later on.

Also I'm just using this for custom installs where I control the 
environment. I would never make a plugin out of it. Must be a 
support-nightmare if you publish a plugin that stops half of the other 
plugins in the Plugin Directory from working (perhaps nearly all of the 
more complex and badly coded ones :-)
