VS.NET 2005 : Why is MS Hard Coding?

I've Seen the Future and It's Hard Coded talks about the new /Data, /Code and /Themes folders in ASP.NET 2.0

I hadn't really thought that much about it, but it is unfortunate that MS hasn't made the foldernames 'more unique' or configurable. If an ASP.NET 1.1 website uses folders with those names, you may have to update your data/links/etc... although I wonder if it wouldn't be too hard to write an HttpHandler to intercept requests for "your" /Code path and process it using HttpContext.Current.RewritePath and an alternate directory-name like /MyCode

Hmmm - planning to download Express soon, so I might give that a try...
