sites/all is a new minor feature in current CVS that adds a 3rd place
where modules and themes can be stored.  In addition to /modules/ and
sites/sitename/modules/, they can also be placed in /sites/all/modules/. 
Modules in /modules/ and /sites/all/modules/ will be available to all
sites, while modules in /sites/sitename/modules/ are site-specific.  It's
primary purpose is that there is now no excuse to put modules in /modules/
that don't come with the core system.  Leave that directory pure and
pristine!  The same applies to theme directories.  ALL
installation-specific stuff can now go under /sites/.

(This was one of the decidedly few patches I had time to contribute myself
recently, so I mention it where I can. <g>)
