Future Proofing Directory Customisations

Hi

I found in other forum topics that you need to modify the code in the template files of directory in order to change the look.

directory/ui-front/buddypress/members/single/directory/

custom-fields.php

listings.php

my-credits.php

my-listings.php

update-listing.php

I imagine during an update these files will be overwritten. Could an override directory be provided where if a file exists in that dir (for example update-listing.php) then it will be displayed? Kind of like the behaviour of bp-custom.php

Cheers,

Johnny
