This patch allows for additional 'system' directories to be searched for
modules/themes/engines etc.

You do this by adding the following into settings.php

  $system_dirs = array( 'contributions');

This would allow you to have all of contrib checked out alongside
drupal core.

We use this extensively in Bryght's hosting platform, to allow us to
add sets of modules to
sites, without having to manage thousands of symlinks for each of the
individual module->site links.

eh. damnit. there was an error in that patch (system_dirs needs to be
global in the bootstrap function).

I'll roll another one later.
