1) Do other people actually think the directory structure of a cookbook is the biggest barrier to learning? This confuses the crap out of me - but I'm the one that inflicted the directory structure on you, so perhaps I'm an awful judge.

I made another proposal to deprecate file specificity and deprecate the templates directory as part of unifying/simplifying the file providers... Its complexity that doesn't often get used and is probably better moved into the recipe. I've gotten tired of doing "mkdir templates/default" and "cd templates/default" all the time when i never use file specificity... The sharks may be circling this one...
