This is very smart, especially when talking about the files folder. The 
default /files is a next to worthless setting. It should, at the least, 
be sites/default/files. And when we change this, couldn't we find a way 
to ship the files folder already created? It's nice that now the server 
at least tries to create a folder with the right permissions, but 
sheeesh, this is still a pain in the neck.
