I noticed that there was already a mention of this before, two years ago, but it did not really get much of a response and the solution (presented in a link) has since become invalid.
I wanted to suggest that themes and plugins can be uploaded and unzipped into the appropriate directory by wordpress by default.
I have a working solution, but I would like to share it with others, the only problem is that I doubt it will work on most servers (the unzip method uses the system(); php command which is normally not aloud). The rest of the code could be used.
I'll try and look at it some more some time if I can but it is unlikely I will have the time any time soon.
I just think its a neat feature that could make a huge difference to the UI without too much work.
I'll try and upload a zip that uploads to the wp-content folder.
It's even possible to create a WP own theme system ie *.wpp and *.wpt if you could.
