That is a good idea, and I think this is what Ted (ma3verik) was
saying all along.

This makes part of Drupal live above DocumentRoot, mainly code
(includes, modules), as well as configuration (settings.php). CSS
stuff has to be under DocumentRoot still.

There will be implications if we take this too far though, for
example, if a module has .css files in it, then do we separate the
.module from .css in different directories? This would then make
installation a pain since files have to be copied elsewhere.
