[development] Distilling distributions from configured sites.

I don't know what the "sites/all thing" is, but I like having all my site 
specific themes, modules, and files under sites/domain/. What I would like 
to see in an installer is a series of checkboxes:

[ ] Create files directory at sites/domain/files [change]
[ ] Create themes directory at sites/domain/themes [change]
[ ] Create modules directory at sites/domain/modules [change]

I think that gives the user the most flexibility.

I especially like the idea of it pre-creating the files directory. 
Unfortunately, I didn't decide that files would be better in their own site 
dirs until recently and now I'm stuck. I want to move them but the fact that 
no one has answered me on http://drupal.org/node/76924 in nearly a week has 
me scared to try it. LOL
