I'd like to remove them ASAP rather than keep them, I just removed some 
stuff without thinking much ;-)

The question is: should we move the krysalis-skin out of Forrest?
I'm +1 to it.

Yeah, but that's up to the skin creator, and I don't really want to 
publish anything about these "skins" ;-)

What I'd like to add is an img="" url with a preview of the skin.

Then I'd like to add a stylesheet for it to Forrest, and have it render 
like here:

The only difference I see is that we don't provide versions of the skins 
on the page; it's made to have users only provide an initial url and be 
able to update skins and image previews without having to notify us each 
single time.
