Post type templates

I'm increasingly finding situations where it would be nice to have the page template functionality available to custom post types (or, more specifically, available to all post types instead of just pages).
From a technical point of view there aren't many changes needed in core to support templates for all post types, but there may be some things to consider regarding the best way to go about it.
Patch coming up for my first pass at it.
Note that the Custom Post Template plugin has 37k downloads so the demand is there.
