Description

Please change this part of code in post-formats.php to make possible for theme and frameworks developers to easy add custom post formats ?

I am mainly telling this because of post listings in multiple columns (2-4 columns. But it is only small part, can be usefull for many....many other layout, design things.

As it is now many frameworks developers are limited regarding to posts listings in columns. Many other, Artisteer for instance for years struggle with it and cannot offer posts in columns only because they cant (or wont) touch core files even with long stick.
Now on market is some wonderful cloud framework "Themler" and even them cannot offer columns because it is locked inside WP core.

I change it easy manualy in post-formats.php and add own but with each WP upgrade it is gone. Easy to put them back (if you remember) but core files sholud never be edited. You learned me this.

Give some option to make it easy for theme developers to manipulate and add new post formats in functions.php (not only change names of default ones), or remove them completely.
Seems as you are caught somewhere in the middle and cannot decide what to do with post formats.
