OK, now that I installed WordPress and customized the Royal theme enough to suit my own megalomania and my girlfriend's taste, I try to post an empty test comment, expecting a nice error message, and... ouch! the digest authentication prompt guarding my administration directory?! why?

A quick grep reveals that the

wp_die()

function in

wp-includes/functions.php

uses its own hardcoded template, linking many assets under the protected

wp-admin

directory, e.g.

install.css

. Bad.

Looks like an "idea" about Modular error pages/a way to override wp_die exists in the Wordpress Ideas vault since two weeks ago. Good.
But I need them now, themed error pages. It's a matter of decency!

Luckily, it's quite easy, even if a wonderfully dirty hack...
