Description

Another way to try limit security problems when found is by allowing users to change the path to the wp-admin folder.

Other PHP scripts allow this, such as MyBB for example.

It's security through obscurity and it would be a world of pain for the person who takes on the task.

Completely agree

and it would be a world of pain for the person who takes on the task.

Well, If everything uses admin_url(), Then it would be a rather simple task actually.. The major problem would be the admin locating the wp-load.php file if it was moved out of the main wordpress folder.

I dont think its needed myself though.
