I do worry about how we'll educate users around the inevitable
confusion of "what's the difference between the two locations".
There will be a lot of outdated misinformation floating around.
I have similar concerns. Its
actually a little worse when you mix in the links folder. Technically speaking
the links folder and the dropins folder are the same thing. One option we
considered was making the “links” folder the place that you drop in your random
stuff (i.e., use links as dropins). Essentially p2 enhances the function of
links. We decided against this thinking that people would not notice the new
capabilities and would be confused by the folder name (links).
