Easy extension installs

I’m relatively new here, so I’m just throwing out an idea. But I note
that lots of extensions have a task for moving their public files to the
relative locations in the public folder as part of the install process.

I guess I’m wondering if simplifying this by dropping a symlink (or a
copy if symlinking is not supported) straight into the public folder
makes sense?

/public
/my_fancy_ext
/images
/javascripts
/stylesheets

Seems cleaner than seeding files throughout the public folder. An
uninstall would be as easy as deleting the symlink.

Just wondering…
