Idea: Allow themes to bundle plugins

    Allow theme developers to bundle plugins with the theme. This way, a theme that is developed to take advantage of the wp-Typography or Sidebar Login plugins will work that way out of the box.

    I don't really see the point. Every time one of the multiple plugins that may be packaged is updated, the theme will also have to be updated. Plus, the theme would still need to check if the plugin is active with function_exists() either way.

    What's the advantage of this over recommending that users download a specific plugin?

    Bundling plugins with a theme would be a bad idea, but a CSV of plugins hosted on the WordPress Plugin Directory might not be.

    You'd just need required_plugins & optional_plugins
