Thanks :-D

Style is not an issue here, they just need to be nice. The problem is 
about maintainability though. ATM we keep only skins that the Forrest 
developers use, and thus will update every time it's needed. In any case 
it's not strictly necessary that we distribute the skins, they can also 
be downloaded and installed on Forrest separately, by copying them in 
the Forrest skins directory (or put on the singular site documentation 
under src/resources/skin IIRC).

Of course, if the design is mouth-watering enough it would be hard to 
not accept it ;-)
