If typo3/ is hardcoded, instead of using TYPO3_mainDir, then it's a bug
and should be fixed.
Nevertheless, renaming typo3/ is from my POV not a good advice, esp as
you have to modify the constant in the TYPO3 Core files (which nobody
should recommend!). To make this a useful and well implemented
configuration option, there should be a way to change it through
localconf.php. However, I don't know, if the constant is used before
already (probably it is..).
