I have made this work in my skin. You can see a demo at The home page has only a single 
level of tabs, clicking on the "IB661 - MIS" tab will give you a second 
level of tabs 

Shall I take the time to put this into the other skins? It could 
probably do with a little work on the display side of things but the 
basic functionality is there and it looks reasonable.

NB it *is* backward compatible, so there is no-one is forced to use it.
