Note that it would only work for 1.3.5+.

Wouldn't make templates available on the website for download be a simpler

   - They could be available on the wiki.
   - We could post a set of instructions on how to make them the best
   possible way.
   - This would be up to the users to produce more and more of those
   templates without interfering with the devels.
   - Outside the "structure" of the templates concept, that is: in which
   directory they must be in order to be loaded easily (I can't think of
   anything else, sorry) the template issue, imho, belongs to the users and not
   the programmers. And I don't think that unless a very few that would give a
   hint there exist lots elsewhere, I would not ship that extra 10 MB... The
   reason is simple: we'll never see the end of this because there are simply
   no limits to templates.
