Why is NuGet forcing the user and developer...

...to use specific folders.

I love NuGet, it is such an great product and idea from Microsoft, but it is already at Version 1.6 and still there is no possibility for a Nuget package developer to have a “_choose_” special folder or something where I can put Content files to, like JavaScript files and if someone use my NuGet Package a small standardized Dialog appears where I can choose where I want the files from the “_choose_” folder place into my project.

For sure NuGet have to remember my choice to update the files on the right place, but you are Microsoft, I'm sure you will get that!

But at the moment NuGet force me as a user to use for example the "Scripts" Folder in MVC projects, for JavaScript files, because developers of NuGet packages have no possibility to do something like I describe above.


I hope you will find this usefull and consider it for the next version.
