My 2 cents:

Would it be too hard to code it so that Blender scans the scripts folder
and all its sub-directories (or until a fixed sub-directory deepness is

So, regardless of where inside the main scripts directory a plug-in is
saved, it shows in the right menu (taken straight from the plug-in

That way each user could arrange and re-arrange the directories in
whatever fashion he desires, but the plugs will still show in the right

Usually I have to answer questions from Blender newbies about how to
=C2=A8install=C2=A8 a plug-in, and many times they have trouble just locati=
ng the
scripts directory. Imagine how would it be if they have to locate a very
specific sub-directory withing the =C2=A8Scripts=C2=A8 hierarchy.
