Please do not take this as criticism or a demand but rather a request for an explanation.
I do not know how Plex, XMBC works as far as metadata, images, plugins are concerned because I do not use them.
Why is it an issue to have the option to have all media associated files (in this case backdrops, themes or other plugin's media related files) saved in one optional spot (which already exists in Metadata -> Advanced -> Metadata path) ? You would rather hide it. Is it the way MBS is designed? Is it for compatibility purposes?
Logically, to me, having the option to contain MBS's generated files to it's own realm at how it processes, utilizes it's own generated data would alleviate any compatibility issues.
Say, I add Plex or XBMC. I should be able to tell those two where to save the associated media files as well. Each server would have it's own metdata, images, backdrops, posters, etc.
This is as an option that is definitely not ideal to all because I imagine plenty of people use MB, Plex, XMBC scenarios in which they share the aforementioned files, and with success. Though, to me that sounds like a trouble waiting to burst out.
